Molded Plaster Low Relief Sculpture: Low Relief is a type of sculpture that projects from a flat background. In this two-day workshop participants create cast plaster low relief sculptures from clay molds of their own hands. They embellish their molds with stamped and carved elements symbolizing ideas, emotions and attitudes that they desire to create in their lives through their own efforts. Participants paint their finished sculptures with metallic acrylics in support of the idea that everything we create should be valuable and precious. Finished low reliefs will vary in size and shape, but will be approximately 12" in diameter, and ready to hang. Read more
