Peter Rubino will lead students on a technical and artistic journey toward understanding the dynamic and creative forces in sculpting representational figures and expressive abstractions in clay. Special lessons will be given on the head, hands and feet.
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 limitless expressions in clay.  Peter will teach participants how to produce dramatic surface textures and professional looking pieces using various tooling techniques. Mr. Rubino will help students discover, explore and develop their own 3 dimensional designs with his unique method of "Sketching in Clay".  Preparing finished clay pieces for firing and the application of simple hand-painted patinas will be explored at the end of the workshop. Peter's upbeat and positive teaching approach encourages students to discover their own personal artistic style. “In class we don't make mistakes, we make adjustments.” Peter Rubino
