Beginners to Intermediate K&K Studios and the Art Store offers a course on the Principles of Sculpture & Mold making. Enjoy building a bust of your loved one! Or creating a voluptuous form in plasteline clay with the correct supports. From designing in the round, to the proper equipment and tool techniques to mold making, your imagination is your only restriction.
Sculpture: This is a water-based clay and an oil-based clay class.
Firing of your projects built in class is included in the class fee. Size and quantity of projects are limited by the present equipment. Please ask about these restrictions.
The sculpture studio offers (3) throwing wheels, a slab roller and a clay extruder for your project needs. The kiln in the store also fires from low to high fire (cone 06 to cone 10).
K & K Studio’s sculpture class is held at 1pm-4pm is usually running on the first four Saturdays.
Open enrollment, all skill levels accepted. A maximum of 8 students is allowed in the studio space so one on one instruction has greater possibilities for the honing of your skills.
All materials are extra. Supply list for sculpture can be found here.

Bio: K & K Studios is a father and son sculpture studio that has worked on international and national sculpture projects over their 35 years of the sculpture studio’s existence. Their portfolio can be viewed online by visiting their website here. He is also the owner and manager of the Art Store. A working artist of over 35 years and many of the projects K & K Studio has been involved with have become permanent collections of nationally known museums. With 30 years of molding experience, thousands of molds for fine sculpture have been built for other working artists. As well as experience in firing ceramics of over 30 years will assist in allowing your visions come to fruition.
Would this class be appropriate for a 10 year old?
I have taught such 10 year olds before. The class is a mixed level and aged class. I have found the child needs to be interviewed to see how their focus range is. The class is 3 hours long and if they are able to focus without distracting the other students it has been allowed. I have found since the class is involving many different projects a self motivated student is required. If you wish her or him to be interviewed, it is possible by requesting one with the instructor, manager and owner of the store. Myself. Keith Kendall.
