"Modeling the Horse and other Animals"
April 20-23, 2020
 

Students will have the option of choosing the animal they would like to sculpt from dogs and cats to horses and wildlife. Students will learn fast, effective armature building, and Rod's techniques for modeling heart and souls into their animals. Rod's known for his expressive animal sculptures, based on solid proportions, but not derived from extensive math or measuring. All reference will be from photos, models, and studying other art. Students can expect to finish a medium sized clay model, suitable for bronze casting. Rod Zullo, Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, has years of experience teaching sculpture. Many of Rod's students have advanced in their careers because of his mentoring and enthusiastic approach to living as an artist.
