Each class will start with a face-to-face introduction and then I will use a second camera so you can see my hands. I will lead you through the project through demonstration, a slideshow and verbal instructions. Students will be encouraged to hold their piece up to the camera, so I can give feedback. This is an intermediate clay class. Learners should have some experience hand building with clay. First week Sculpt a little green alien onto a slab of clay creating a relief. I will show you...
Learn the definition of relief sculpture. How to make a clay slab. How to slip and score. How to mix acrylic paint to achieve accurate colors. How to mix tints and shades. How to brace your hand so that it is steady when painting.
Clay and sculpture are my passion! I have a BFA in Ceramics from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
After the first class, students will need to loosen the plastic wrap every two days, so the sculpture dries gradually to prevent cracking. If using polymer clay, the sculpture will need to be baked in your oven according to package directions.
First class: >Clay First choice – I highly recommend Creative Paperclay which can be purchased from art supply stores and Amazon. Prices range from $9 to $16 for a 16 ounce package. You'll need about 8 ounces of Creative Paperclay. Creative Paperclay is lightweight and strong when it dries. Second choice – Another good choice is Amaco (white or grey) air dry clay. It's not as strong as Creative Paperclay when it's dry. Third choice –Polymer clay. Even if you don't have the colors needed, it can be painted with acrylic paint. The polymer clay will need to baked between classes. You can use other kinds of air dry clay, but I can't vouch for the end result because the consistency of air dry clays vary. *****Upon enrollment, you will receive a PDF which has links to where the supplies can be bought online. *****If you have any questions about the materials, please message me. I'll be happy to help! Tools >If you don't have clay tools you can use a toothpick, butter knife, a dull pencil and a popsicle stick. >If you have clay tools, you'll need a modeling stick, a butter knife, dull pencil and a pin tool. >Small container of water and brush. >Plastic wrap to loosely wrap the sculpture as it dries. >One piece of white paper. >Piece of cardboard approximately 5 x 6". The cardboard will be used with the piece of white paper on top to act as a stiff backing for the sculpture so the learner can pick up the sculpture easily to show it to me. Second class: >Acrylic paints in brown, white, black, green, red and yellow. >Two small paintbrushes. One with a fine tip for details. > A pallette to mix the paint. You can use a clean Styrofoam tray or paper plate. >Container to rinse brushes. >Paper towels. >Newspaper to cover work surface.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
