Sculpting Seminars with Philippe Faraut

Philippe Faraut sculpting over-sized clay bust of man with beard for sculpting workshops

Sculpting instruction has been our main focus for over three decades. We offer two class options to study Philippe's methods in addition to our books and DVDs.


1. Online Course Option

Our online course includes over 18 hours of comprehensive and progressive training on sculpting the portrait. For beginners as well as professionals who want to improve their skills. Optional subtitles in French & Spanish.



2. In-Person Workshops

2024 Registration is Open!

Individuals will receive one-to-one sculpting instruction using water-based clay from Mr. Faraut, while still being encouraged to explore their own styles. Live models will be used for the portrait and figure classes.

Students range from beginners to professional artists. All skill levels are welcome due to the nature of Philippe's teaching style. The goal of all of the seminars is to teach sculptors how to improve their techniques and speed. Sculptures from the animal classes are likely to be completed, however, finished pieces are not necessarily the goal of the portrait and figure classes though students are welcome to keep any or all of the projects that they have created. Please note that we do not offering firing services.

All materials are provided for use during the seminar. Class hours for sessions held at Philippe's NY studio are from 9-4:30 daily.

A non-refundable, non-transferable deposit will be required for registration. Balance for the seminars will be due 6 weeks prior to the first day of class. A link will be sent at that time to pay online or payment can be mailed. Once balance is paid it is non-refundable.
