Animal Sculpture

Animal Portrait Sculpture

This Animal Portrait workshop offers a unique approach to animal portraiture that captures the individuality of the animal. You will learn how to create a generic animal face through Andrew Sinclair’s ground-breaking Design Criteria methodology. Once the essence of the animal has been understood and modelled in clay, the specific characteristics of your animal subject will be applied to your sculpture. This approach is so important; giving you a strong foundation on which to build your developing sculpture skills and techniques. It enables you to avoid just copying what you think you see, so you can create a beautifully seen animal portrait way beyond your expectations.
