Spotlight on Scuplture

Just before spring classes started we had a chance to sit down with Sergio Ceron's Figure Sculpture class and the Self Portrait in Clay class taught by Robin Power.

Sergio has been a part of the Lillstreet Art Center community for years, having studying fine Arts at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. When asked to describe the class students said "Sergio gives positive feedback, never negative criticism" and that the class works well because "there is no competition, all cooperation." When asked: why sculpture? the answer came easily - "In the end, it's learning to see."

Robin's background is in classic figure sculpture and anatomy having studies at the School of the Art Institute. Her students raved about the positive learning environment, fresh perspective, and opportunities for self discovery that Robin presented to them.

Summer classes start tomorrow! Consider expanding your horizons by taking a four week sculpture class- Figure Sculpture with Sergio Ceron, or Bas Relief with Robin Power. Come July take and eight week Figure Sculpture class with Sergio or a Figure in Costume class with Robin. Maybe a one day workshop is a better fit for your summer schedule? Check out Robin's August 13 Hand Study Workshop.
