“If your Eye Likes it, it is considered a well done art piece”
In this three-hour Sculpture workshop, students will experience and learn to manipulate water-based non-toxic clay to create three-dimensional artwork and sculptures. By using a variety of vibrant colored clay and rhinestones, along with other media such as shimmered finishes and golden sculpture bases, the student will feel able to express their creativity through their hands by manipulating the clay in a meditative way of self-expression through creating a 3D artwork.
Without the need to use a clay oven, and ready to take home on the same day, students will practice adding texture to their clay piece, by using a variety of tools.
It will be a unique media and experience for all levels to enjoy. There will be a review at the end of the session for students to learn about each other’s final work, also constructive critique may be shared. All materials are included. No previous experience is necessary.
