Venutian Soldier Bust Sculpting

Presented by Bemis School of Art at Bemis School of Art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Colorado Springs CO

Oct 13 - 14 2018
Venutian Soldier Bust Sculpting presented by Venutian Soldier Bust Sculpting at Bemis School of Art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Colorado Springs CO

Join Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz in this hands-on workshop as he demonstrates and instructs the clay-working processes he uses to create his exquisitely smooth and finely detailed ceramic head and shoulders forms. 

Atop a simple armature base, and under Virgil’s watchful eye, participants will work towards creating their own sculptural busts. Day one begins with an artist talk and slide presentation, then finishes with the entire group (instructor included) getting hands touching clay and starting their own personal pieces. Day two starts with more demonstrations, completion of the wet-working steps, and finishes with a discussion of final surface treatments. Some clay experience required.
