WAA offers sculpture workshop with Dale Martin beginning May 1

The Weatherford Art Association will be hosting an adult beginner and intermediate sculpture workshops and classes every Wednesday and Saturday in May.

Wednesday classes will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and Saturday classes will be 3-6 p.m. beginning Wednesday, May 1, at the Firehouse Art Gallery, 119 Palo Pinto St.

Students will be using an oil-based plastaline clay, a clay used mostly for sculptures cast in bronze or other media and is non-hardening. It can not be fired but remains pliable for years and can be worked over and over again.

Each student will create a sculpture of their choice but a photo of what they intend to sculpt should be brought to class to use as a reference by the instructor and student. Some sculpture examples will be furnished to those that wish to use them as reference material.

The workshop costs $110, and all materials will be furnished and become the property of the student. There is a $35 non-refundable deposit required to sign up for the workshop so that your materials may be purchased and ready to use at the beginning of the workshop.

Students that do not have sculpting tools will be furnished a wooden base to work on, armature wire (as needed), sculpting tools, and 4 pounds of clay. Students who already have tools (including beginning students) will be furnished a wooden base to work on, 8 pounds of clay and armature wire (as needed).

There will be a maximum of 12 students accepted and enrollment ends April 14. All balances must be paid in full by the beginning of the first class. If for any reason WAA cancels the workshop then all deposits will be refunded.

Students will need to furnish a flexible measuring tape, a sharp knife for cutting clay, a pair of common pliers and a rag or paper towels for occasional hand wiping.

To sign up or for questions, contact John Stout, vice president of classes and workshops, at 817-599-7802 or call WAA at 817-599-3278.
