Using a fresh and intuitive sculptural language, Rubino will lead students on a technical and artistic journey toward understanding the dynamic and creative forces in larger-than-life-size portrait sculpture as well as a focus on how to sculpt hands and feet. Follow Peter’s step-by-step method of blocking in the foundation, establishing facial planes and capturing the essence and expression associated with the human head. Rubino encourages you to go BIG and develop your own individual artistic style.

Rubino will perform daily demos, lectures, and discussions of hollowing, firing and patina techniques, plus provide individual encouragement and instruction. The clay head will develop in three stages over the course of 3 days. Day 4 and 5 will be dedicated to sculpting hands and feet. Click the link below to see a detailed daily schedule.
