Sculpture Portrait Retreat

Presented by Gabrielle Trom - Artist at Dunrovin Christian Brothers Retreat Center

Four and a half day (Live Model) Portrait Sculpture Workshop. Class runs from 10AM-1PM, breaks for lunch, and then resumes from 2:30PM-5:30PM Monday-Thursday. Class on Friday will run from 10AM-12PM

Cost per student is $460. This fee will include classes, armatures, clay, use of tripods, model time, and studio space. The minimum required number of students is 6 for this class to take place. Sign-up deadline is April 12, 2019

Students will need to bring:

Spackling spatula

Large wooden cooking spatula

Plastic to cover their sculpture

Spray bottle to wet their sculpture

Sketch book



Other tool recommendations (not required, but helpful) will be provided to students who sign up.

The goal is to create a finished clay portrait and to learn observation and anatomy in the traditional figurative methods of the great masters. If students wish to preserve their creation, I will share the learning materials for making a plaster waste-mold, or they can send their creation to one of the nearby foundries to have it cast in another material.

Once there are 6 students signed up, confirmation details will be sent.

To sign up, please send a message via the contact form on the website.
