Portrait Sculpture

Introduction

Creating true likeness in portrait sculpture requires more than just correctly reproducing features, it is also vital to capture the true spirit of your subject. This Portrait Sculpture course will teach you the techniques and skills to realistically capture your subject’s likeness within your sculptures. 

Core to the methods taught during the courses is the proven Rapid Sketch Technique (RST) ™, which is part of the Sinclair Method ™ – unique to The Sculpture School. This ground – breaking system, along with our specially designed portrait armature, will give you the capability to capture the true likeness and the spirit of your subjects, whatever your experience. 

Materials included in the course fee: bespoke steel portrait head-stand with foam head, baseboard, clay for sculpting, course reference manual, model photographs.

Portrait Sculpture Level 1

This innovative workshop reveals the secrets that will enable you to create a true likeness in your portrait sculptures every time, no matter what your experience of sculpting is. Working with a portrait life model on Day 1, you will learn how to use photography for sculpture and how to effectively take portrait measurements.  You will learn our systematic approach to developing professional sculpture skills using the Sinclair Method of Sculpture, ™ which includes the Rapid Sketch Technique ™ of clay application. You will create a realistic life-size portrait head, to scale, which you will take home to continue working on Master sculptor Andrew Sinclair MRSS, shares his professional techniques with you, revealing his unique way of how to capture the essence of the real person in your portrait sculpture. 

Advanced Portrait Sculpture Level 2

Taking your sculpture skills and techniques to another level, this master class is aimed at the more experienced sculptor who has already completed our Level 1 Portrait Sculpture Workshop. Focussing on how to capture the essence of the portrait’s character by adding facial expression and movement, you will discover the impact of measurements and how they change with something as simple as a smile. Working with a portrait life model on the first session, you will revise the Sinclair Method  of portrait measurement. You will also gain a greater understanding of the underlying facial anatomy, as master sculptor Andrew Sinclair MRSS takes you through these next stages to attain professional sculpture skills. This course gives you the ability to create a realistic life-size portrait head, to scale, which you will take home to continue working on.
