Our goal is to create figures and busts with ease and
joy, in a relaxed ambiance in either a classical, impressionistic,
or abstract style, since each of us creates his/her

begin a 3/4-size bust in terra cotta. From there, we
move on to projects of the student's choice. A life
model is available to sculpt three times during the
