Introduction to Life-Casting *In-Person* *NEW*

In this course we will explore the basics of mold-making to make plaster casts using alginate and plaster gauze. Students will have the option of casting their hands, and/or faces, learning a few sculpture materials and techniques, while having some messy fun. The casts make good studies for drawing, sculpting, or simply as personal mementos. Instructors: Taylor Apostol & Evan Morse
