Thank you for all of the wonderful comments. Hope to see you all in a sculpture class soon :-)

I am teaching an exciting class this winter term: Art 293 Figure Sculpture. We are working with models and sculpting the human form and portraits in clay. We only offer this once a year at Sylvania; its great fun, come and join us for a very special experience.
