The skill of figurative sculpting is very applicable in the modern world. From character development to model-making to film and stage production and even interior design. Once you conquer it, you will be capable of sculpting pretty much any shape you want.

Getting there takes a lot of practice and this live online class can help you on that journey by systematically developing a portrait sculpture of a person from basic geometric shapes. Your experienced teacher Irina, a professional sculptor herself, will instruct you on what to pay attention to.

Finally, you will learn what to do with sculptures once you finish them, how to preserve them or make them functional. Your teacher will direct you on how to continue sculpting once the class has ended.

During the class, your teacher will be sculpting with you and will demonstrate everything in order to follow and guide you in your progress.

You can attend this class as many times as you like, as this skill takes a bit of dedication. Class numbers are limited to five people so that you will always get your chance to ask questions and receive assistance. Bookings for larger groups are welcome via “custom booking requests“.

Note: This class is open for a custom topic that you may want to sculpt if you are booking for a group.

Hi, I'm Irina.

I like to introduce myself as a sculptor, although I'm engaged in different art disciplines too. I have never had another profession, nor have I wanted one. I fell in love with three-dimensional art at a very early age which came to me naturally, as I was born in a family of artists. It was the world I've grown up in, a measure of value around me.

I have graduated from Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, and with a bit of luck, I had a chance to work internationally and gain great experience in different industries and media. Cooperating with professionals from other creative fields has perfectioned my skills and broadened the views of my artistic expression.

I have tried to gather all the projects I am engaged in on this website, showcase it, sell and teach my art. Always open for the new projects with fellow creatives, just get in touch.
