Clay sculpting workshop by Barbara Wolf March 29 at the Cheyenne Artists Guild

Clay Day at the Cheyenne Artists Guild
Tuesday, March 29, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
$50 for Guild members, $60 non-members, plus $10 material fee

If you have always wondered how it would feel to have clay between your fingers and see the miraculous transformation from a clump of clay into a recognizable human shape, this is the class for you. We will begin with a basic human anatomy lesson, and we will culminate in acquiring the sensitivity to express feelings, purpose and emotions represented by a well thought-out gesture. You will have the opportunity to experiment with different modeling techniques, usage of various sculpting tools using a self-drying clay, which hardens without firing. No prior experience is necessary, so please do not feel intimidated if you have never sculpted before. The class is small so you will receive plenty of one on one attention and leave with your own sculpture.

Barbara Wolf is a graduate of Central Michigan University, with masters from Aquinas College. With a background in dance as a performer, teacher and choreographer, she always had a passion for sculpting. Her first experience with sculpting clay began in high school and her bust of a man won her a state award of a blue ribbon. Her more recent work is a study in a series of women figures that she sculpted and in addition, wrote a book based on these figures. Barbara enjoys teaching sculpting of the human body and finds that it is expressive, complex, challenging and rewarding. She feels working with the human form affords the artist the ability to express feelings, purpose and emotions that may be hard to verbalize.

Take a day to come play with clay!
