This is a fabulous class for artists who want to learn how to sculpt a life-size proportionate and realistic human head in clay. You will learn the most relevant "Relative Proportions" of the face and head as well as the subcutaneous bone landmarks. We start by sculpting a skull and learning the names and shape of all the head bones. I have a real human skull which we use as our model. After you finish sculpting a skull, you will start adding the respective muscles over it. You will learn the most important head and shoulders muscles by names and shapes. After you are done sculpting the muscles, I will teach you how to properly sculpt the features of the face such as ears, lips, nose, eyes, etc. We do not use a life model in this workshop, as our main goal is the understanding of the anatomy, and relative proportions of a human head, not the rendering of a particular person. We take a 30-minute fun food break where we share food, laughs and get to know each other. You will have lots of fun while learning in a very creative, supportive and free environment! You are welcome to work until 6 P.M. during weekend at no extra cost. THE HUMAN HEAD WORKSHOP: Starts: June 12 - July 12, 2017 Hours: Saturdays 10:30 - 4, Mondays & Wednesdays 6:45 - 9:45 Where: MIR studio near City College in SF Cost: $750 includes all you will need (firing fee $35 optional) This is a small class so you will receive plenty individual attention. .

Students Testimonials: "After I participated in Marilyn's very informative and fun Head workshop I was able to later sculpt a bust of my Mom from an old photograph. I was very pleased with the results. I couldn't have done it without taking the workshop first. I highly recommend it!" ~ N. Giles. "I have taken the Hand and the Head workshops and they are both terrific. I now understand much better human anatomy and how the bones and muscles help shape the outside. I also learn very useful relative proportions" ~ T. Gant " I had never sculpted a human bust or any other human part before. This was extremely valuable and fun. I had no idea we would get so far so fast!" ~ C. Hixon "While Marilyn's sculpture classes are really fun, and I learn a lot, and my pieces turn out so much better than I'd imagined, the classes help me in life, too. Marilyn has taught me to observe, see, and notice more - not just about human bodies, but about everything. It's easier to find more things in life that are interesting ("look at those ears!"), and to solve problems more easily because I notice more details I suddenly have more information to work with because I perceive more of what's around me. For instance, after the last class, I got in my car and found myself feeling shapes, contours and textures in my steering wheel, which I've handled a thousand times, but never noticed before. It opens up a world of wonder, that there's still so much I haven't noticed yet." ~ S. Young "Through Marilyn's personal attention, I experienced the joy and magic of sculpture. A wonderful experience." ~ K. Lind
