Weekend Sculpting Class at Marianne Groh Studio observes sculpting nose in clay

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 own vision. The small classes for five to seven people allow students as much help and advice as desired. Beginners as well as advanced students are welcome in the weekly classes or in the weekend workshops. We work in terra cotta from the sculpting through the firing process. We also work in wax and plastiline for students who wish to have their pieces cast in bronze.

My method is simple. I begin with a detailed demonstration of the nose, ears, eyes, and mouth. Very quickly students 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 6-week session.
