Sculptor to give lessons on the human figure


San Marcos Parks and Recreation has teamed up with Jason Scull, a nationally recognized sculptor, to offer an eight week class on how to sculpt the human figure.

This class will explore the process of sculpting the human figure, from concept to the completion of the clay model. Scull will cover armature construction, proportion, anatomy, design and composition. By the end of the eight weeks, participants should have a good concept of the sculpting process and a clay model at or near completion.

Jason Scull is the creator of the Jack Hays sculpture on the Hays County Court House lawn. Throughout his twenty two year career, Scull has taught numerous workshops relating to western art and the creation of figurative and equine sculpture. His work is found in private and corporate collections in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. He also has been featured in Art of the West and Southwest Art.

Sculpting the Human Figure class will begin Tuesday, May 5 and will continue eight weeks. The class will be held every Tuesday at the Dunbar Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The fee is $220 which includes all materials that will be needed. Register online at or by calling the Parks and Recreation Main Office at (512) 393-8400.
