We will sculpt from one model for the entire 5 days. Working at life size with solid clay packed around a pipe armature, we'll aim for a striking likeness. The model will assume an expression which could inspire a mood or narrative. Throughout the workshop, Tip will demonstrate clear steps in achieving an anatomical head, neck, and shoulders. We'll also discuss the subtleties and nuances of achieving expression. The last half of the last day we will cut the bust off the armature and hollow, then put it back together. Each participant will be responsible to fire their own work.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs
