This is a fantastic 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, head, and shoulders as well as the "Subcutaneous Bone Landmarks". We start by sculpting a skull using a real skull as our model. You will learn the names and shape of all the head bones. After you finish sculpting the skull you will learn how to properly sculpt the features of the face ie. ears, lips, nose, eyes, hair 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. No previous experience necessary. 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! THE HUMAN HEAD WORKSHOP Starts: Sept 7- Oct 10, 2017 Dates: Sept 7, 12, 14, 19, 26 / Oct 3, 10, 17 / (Oct 13, Saturday Optional for students who missed classes or wish mor time) Hours: Tuesday & Thursday 6:45 - 9:45, Sat 11 - 4 Where: MIR studio near City College in SF * Saturday class is optional for students who missed classes or want more time to work on their piece Cost: $650 includes all you will need (firing fee $35 optional) This is a small class so you will receive plenty individual attention. . If you wish to purchase my award-winning book, "AN ARTIST'S GUIDE TO PROPORTIONS AND MEASUREMENTS OF THE SKELETAL SYSTEM" and its complementary chart of "Relative Proportions and Bone Landmarks" go to Amazon or directly through me. 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

I am a professional Master Sculptor, teacher, and award-winning author. I specialized in the human figure and horses. I have been teaching this class since 1996. I also offer sculpture workshops, private consultations, and critiques. I teach sculpture classes at Waldorf high school in San Francisco since 2012. I have been repeatedly invited to give live sculpture demonstrations at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from SFSU, I moved to Europe where my fervor for classical sculpture flourished, having the opportunity to study Europe’s best art collections. Upon my return to the U.S., I pursued classical sculpture training and stone carving for 5 years under the tutelage of international Master Sculptor Harriet Moore in San Francisco, CA. My award winning book, "An Artist's Guide to Proportions and Measurements of the Skeletal System" is available on Amazon or at my studio.
