Class Listings & Descriptions: I start my students with a simple Black Bear Sculpture. I show how to make an armature from aluminum foil and floral wire. I show how to make a sculpture base out of Polymer Clay. I show how to paint the finished sculpture with acrylic paints. I supply all materials and a step by step illustrated workbook. Advanced class students sculpt animals of their choice.
Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:
"Learn you craft and start out by teaching small groups. If you enjoy teaching move to bigger groups. Limit your teaching time to allow time for yourself to sculpt to avoid teaching burn out."
