LEARN HOW TO SCULPT THE HUMAN FIGURE IN CLAY
Starts: April 24 - June 20, 2017
This is a 13-week class, 39 hours dedicated to learning the CLASSICAL HUMAN FIGURE THE TRADITIONAL WAY. You will have the opportunity to sculpt in clay the human figure working with a professional art model the entire duration of the class. For students who will miss classes, they will have the option to hire the model, at a nominal cost, for two extra classes.
We take a 30-minute fun pot-luck dinner break where we share laughs, food, wine and get to know each other. No prior experience is necessary so please don't feel intimidated if you have never sculpted before. Unlike many other large art classes, this is a small class of ONLY 8 adult students. You will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction. The tuition includes everything you will need to sculpt, ie. tools, materials, clay, armature, etc. This class gets full so early enrollment is encouraged.
YOU WILL LEARN:
- Participation in choosing an inspiring pose
- Relative Proportions
- Skeletal and Muscular System
- Subcutaneous Bone Landmarks
- Correct way to "see" and "measure" a three-dimensional form
- Surface Modeling
- Armature Building
- Experiment with a variety of sculpting tools
- Learn how to repair damages before and after firing
- Become aware of different patinas, paint mediums, and glazes
- Required preparation before kiln firing
Starts: April 24 - June 20, 2017
Tuition: $775 Includes all the materials and tools you will need
When: 8 Monday evenings, 3 Thursdays and 1 Tuesday, plus two extra optional classes. Dates to be determined by students

ABOUT MARILYN INES
I am a trained classical sculptor, teacher, and award-winning author specialized in the human figure and horses. 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 returned 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.
Since 1996 I have been sharing my knowledge and passion teaching the only privately taught "Classical Figure Sculpture Class with Professional Model" for adults out of my studio in San Francisco, California. I offer weekend sculpture workshops, private consultations, critiques worldwide and I teach sculpture classes at Waldorf high school in San Francisco. I have the honor of being repeatedly invited to give live sculpture demonstrations at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.
My book "An Artist's Guide to Proportions and Measurements of the Skeletal System" is an award winner of the International Latino Book Awards. You may purchase it through amazon.
