Alicia Ponzio at Scottsdale Artists’ School
January 17 – 21, 2022
Modeling a portrait from life is a fantastic way to study the forms of the human face and head, and improve clay modeling skills. Alicia will break down the important structural elements needed to achieve a likeness, the proportions of the face and head, and the specific forms of the features…as well as how they change in subtle expressions. Students will work from life to create a roughly 3/4 life size bust in water-based clay on a fixed armature.
