The Art of Sculpting
Thank you for stopping by my studio and exploring my passion of sculpting the human form in water-based clay. I find great satisfaction in creating this amazing and fascinating subject not only in my work, but also instructing workshops to beginners and professional artists alike. My teaching method is structured to assist students in developing and advancing their skills, style and creativity. Each workshop includes detailed lectures on bone structure and anatomy as well as emotion, age, ethnicity and gender.
Please take a moment to visit my work, my students' work and their testimonials on taking the course.
Thanks again and I hope to see you in class,

"Jim is known as a brilliant sculptor, but after taking his portrait sculpting workshop, I now know that his true talent is in teaching. Taking his class gives you the confidence to look in the mirror and say, Hey, I am an artist! Even if you've never had that thought before! My husband and I took his workshop together, and I would say that if you are looking for something new, interesting, fun, and educational to do as a couple, this is it! Just be warned that you will never look at other humans in quite the same way after this class. Two thumbs up for Jim."
"It was a great (and challenging) experience for me to actually build a portrait in three dimensions, instead of painting the illusion of the features of a face as I am used to doing. Loved the feel of the clay! It was just a wonderful, informative workshop, and I hope to be able to take it again soon. Thanks for all the tremendous effort and energy you put into teaching the workshop, Jim."
"I just finished my first class with Jim. His new studio set-up is very streamlined and a joy to work in. I have been working in clay for many years and have even sculpted quite a few faces, but Jim is adept at teaching everyone from beginner to advanced. He is able to help everyone to be successful and to grow in skills and confidence from wherever their skills begin. If you are considering taking this class, stop considering and sign-up."
