How do you turn your sketchbook character into a three-dimensional clay figure? It is easy and quick to create using polymer clay, as you build over a metal armature and then sculpt the broad forms and fine details. The course starts with lessons in sculptural anatomy, proportion and exaggeration -- all of which play into how your hero might be shaped -- and concludes with a demonstration of painting techniques over the finished sculpture (or maquette). By the course's end you will have learned a process of character design that continues to have value to illustrators and concept design professionals.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.
