Would you like to play with clay and learn to sculpt? Jim Demetro’s classes are for beginners or those who want to enhance their artistic sculpting skills. The emphasis is on having fun as Jim guides you through the process with a lot of personal attention.
Demetro provides everything you need, including a live model, sculpting clay, and all the tools necessary to sculpt a figure about 16″ tall. The end result can be molded and cast in a number of materials such as plaster, resin or bronze, or you can keep it in clay to be worked on later as this oil-based clay never hardens.
The class is five days long, Monday through Friday, from 10 AM to 3 PM with a 40 minute break for lunch. The cost is $395 US dollars in cash or the equivalent in pesos.
The class schedule for the season is as follows:
February 18th to the 22nd Beginners class (Monday to Friday)
March 11th to the 15th Beginners class
March 25th to the 29th Advanced class for those who have taken Jim’s beginners class.
Please email Jim and wife Eva with the week that works for you as classes fill up fast, and it will be first come, first served.
