Head and Hands

HEAD AND HANDS: 5 day week course (Monday 11th to Friday 15th November 10am - 4pm) 

A convincing and affecting portrait relies on so much more than the features of the face: the set of the shoulders, the angle of the head, the general demeanor of the individual – all of these are equally important attributes, communicating a sense of identity and humanity. Hands are particularly expressive and the portrait bust incorporating the hands is a recurring form in both painting and sculpture. We will be making a half-scale bust in clay from a clothed sitter over the course of five consecutive days.
