The first day we work from the model – rapidly, intuitively, catching the gesture without letting the critical mind get in the way. We make many small pieces. Our pace provides a sense of movement and excitement, capturing the energy of both model and artist. When the model leaves, we focus without pressure, developing, transforming, abstracting pieces as we choose or using them as maquettes for a larger piece. This fast moving, exciting workshop will lead to looser, more dynamic, imaginative sculpture with the figure the starting point.


JUDITH GREENLEAF received her M.A. from UCLA teaching and working in Los Angeles until moving to the Mendocino Coast 45 years ago.
