City to present class on sclupting the human figure


The San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department will present an eight week class on sculpting the human figure, with nationally recognized sculptor Jason Scull.

The class will explore the process of sculpting the human figure, from concept to completion of the clay model. Armature construction, proportion, anatomy, design and composition are some of the things Scull will cover.

At the end of the course, participants should have a good concept of the sculpting process, and a clay model at or near completion.

Scull created the statue of the Jack C. Hays sculpture on the Hays County Courthouse lawn. In his 22-year career, Scull has taught numerous workshops on western art, and the creation of figurative and equine sculpture. His work is found in both public and private collection, and he has been featured in “Art Of The West” and “Southwest Art.”

The class will begin May 5 at the Dunbar Center, from 6-9 p.m. The class will continue every Tuesday for the following eight weeks.

The $220 registration fee will cover all needed materials. Registration is available online, or by calling the Parks and Recreation main office at (512) 393-8400.
