Sculpting in Clay, for all levels
This workshop is 5 sessions, designed as an interactive class where students will sculpt along with Peter
~ Beginners Welcome ~

Using the principles of simplicity and exaggeration, Peter will take you on an artistic journey exploring the fascinating world of abstract sculpture. Learn how to visualize and think in the abstract by first creating small free form clay sketches concentrating on movement and gesture. The gestures will be the gateway towards creating fully developed abstract sculptures based on figures in pose or imagined forms.

[Peter] is the best instructor I’ve had. His influence still informs my work. Working with him opened my eyes to seeing the form as it moves through space.  ~ SP, student from workshop in Tuscany

I am amazed with how much I have learned and the beautiful sculpture I have created in such a short time.  Peter’s class was well planned, organized and details thoughtfully explained.   ~ CM, student online
