The Portrait in Clay
July 10-12, 2014 (9am-4pm) — The portrait is one of the most intimate traditional subjects for artists - look into a person's eyes and you see their heart.

Doug brings this same sensibility to his workshops - teaching both the techniques and poetry of sculpting the human form. Working from a live model, each student will create a life-size portrait in clay. Visit website
