Course Description:

No sculpting or previous art experience is necessary to take The Art Of Mask Making class.

FX Artist & Instructor Dallas Harvey will take students through the process of sculpting a creature or realistic human character face mask. Students will be taught proper use of tools, materials and basic anatomy to create a detailed clay mask and then prepare it for molding and casting in rubber latex.

You will then learn how to finish your mask using professional painting techniques, creating realistic eyes and teeth. Students are encouraged to sculpt and detail their face into a character design of their choosing using reference from comic books, movies, TV, animation, video games, Internet or any other design source.

Students will leave this sculpture class with a professional quality latex mask that can be used as a portfolio piece. The final mask size is approx. 10 inches X 7.5 inches.

All sculpting materials, tools and basic reference material are included and will be provided. Students will receive a certificate of course completion signed by the Instructor.
