The Clay Figurine program is provided by the American Academy of Fine Art.

We believe that the ability to sculpt is an inherently human trait. It is just a matter of honing it to a specific craft. We will offer step-by-step instruction with an emphasis on modeling, especially how the material we use, our approach and tacit assumptions, our individual point of view, and the progressive observation from more than one angle that occurs during the process of work. Student artists will be introduced to the principles of sculpture and techniques for construction. We will look at a wide variety of sculptures both for reference and inspiration. Students will then flex their new perspectives to create their own masterpieces.
