Peter Rubino will lead students on a technical and artistic journey toward understanding the dynamic and creative forces in sculpting both representational figures and expressive figure abstractions in clay. Utilizing Peter's guiding principles: Position, Proportion, Planes combined with easy to follow step by step instructions, students will learn how to “see in the round” and create dramatic expressions in clay.  Special focus given to hands and feet plus how to produce a professional looking surface texture utilizing various tooling techniques.  Peter will help students discover, explore and develop their own 3 dimensional designs with his unique method of "Sketching in Clay".  Also discussed will be how to prepare finished clay pieces for firing and the application of a simple, hand-painted patina.  Peter's upbeat and positive teaching approach encourages students to discover their own personal artistic style. “We don't make mistakes, we make adjustments.” Peter Rubino
