    World-renowned sculptor Johanna Schwaiger joins New Masters Academy, bringing with her over 20 years experience of teaching and producing figurative and portrait sculpture. In her first series, she demonstrates her method of sculpting a female portrait from a live model. You’ll learn important methods and procedures using various sculpting materials and tools, key landmarks of the skull, and basic clay application. In this lesson, Johanna continues to refine the features of the nose, eyes, and mouth. Now that she’s placed the major volumes of the face, she finishes the turban and extends the neck and sternum to a compositionally tasteful length. Now that she’s found the “border” of the volumes and structures, Johanna begins to treat the surface of the sculpture more deliberately. Her sculpture has come a long way!
