The class will be taught during two evening sessions. The first two-hour session on Thursday, June 2, will focus on learning the facial canons (or proportions) and applying them to sculpture. Using a provided photo, the student will learn techniques for taking facial measurements and converting them to scale.

During the second session on Thursday, June 9, participants will apply the measurements to the clay and create the likeness.

The cost is $50 per person. To sign up, call 616-396-3278.
