Handbuilding The Figure With Cold Finish

All Levels
February 4 & 11, 2024 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm View in Your Timezone

In this two session course, students will learn to coil-build expressive figures and use cold finishes like paint and wax to develop voice from form to surface.

We will balance details like wrinkles and pores with gesture to tell a story. Jennifer will cover sculpting from life and creating a blueprint to develop engaging color palettes.

This class will also open dialogue about the evolving lived experience in a soft but powerful body and how to be bold through color and form.



All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
