Question from mo
Hello! Will you be firing any of the clay sculptures, or are they sent home "raw"?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello, Mo! Teale Sculpture Studio have a kiln and are happy to fire the students' water-based clay projects in-house. They sell 3 types of water-based clay which range from $12-$18 per 25-pound bag. Sculptures done in oil-based clay are not fired but typically sent to a foundry for casting. Another option is to use their air-dry clay which requires neither foundry nor kiln. Hope this helps!
Question from Maryam B.
Hi. How many sessions are there? Thanks, Maryam.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Maryam, this class has only 1 session.
Question from Ria C.
Is this a good class for someone who is a proficient wheel potter but wants to get into sculpting?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey there, Ria! Yes, the clay sculpture classes would be appropriate because they are studio format (each student works on his/her own project) and mixed level. The school work with everyone from the 2D artist exploring 3D to complete novices to someone who took sculpture in college or high school years ago and wish to explore it again. Hope this helps!
Question from Heidi N.
How much do the materials cost if purchased from the instructor?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
They have water-based clay in stock at the Studio - 25 lb block for $10. Students that prefer oil-based clay buy it themselves. There are studio tools which can be used by the new student but they do sell a beginners’ clay tools set for $15. They have armature components in the studio at a nominal cost ($1 - $10) to the student. Some students bring these from home as well. Typically the beginning student does not need an armature.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
They also have a kiln so firing can be done in-house for a nominal fee. Therefore, a brand new student just needs to purchase/bring clay to get started on the first project. Nothing else should be needed.
