Lisa Silas, from The Neoteric Renaissance Arts Cooperative will be presenting a demonstration of clay building for the figure and how to stand and apply the perspectives in the round using methods she learned from The Florence Academy of Art as well as methods she has developed in the last 10 years of studying the art form of sculpture. She will also be showing a slide presentation of classical realists artists, the present age and back through the 19th century and Renaissance. All the artists have mastered sculpture in different ways and inspire the present day sculptor.

Jonathan Chorn, Lisa Silas, and Matthew Riggs teach a full time program designed to provide the student with a great understanding of the techniques it takes to create a realistic work of art. This is a time honored, focused, challenging arts program for the artist willing to work to extraordinary lengths and push themselves to great levels.
