“Facial Techniques”

*The work shown is that of the instructor
In this “Facial Techniques” workshop, students will have an opportunity to work with paper clays. We will start with making a simple face to get acquainted with the medium and then learn techniques for developing facial expressions such as anger, aging, sadness or laughing. I will provide step-by-step guidance on how to achieve this goal.
