Teaching was....

Teaching was for me a wonderful experience.  I enjoyed it very much and I can only say, that the children and the adults that sat at my tables to take the challenge to sculpt their very own pets, were all very surprised on how neat and interesting of an experience they  had.  The smiles on everyones face was the best part of it all.   It was interesting cause before the eyes went on the sculpts they were like... well it looks  good, then the eyes were added and all of a sudden,  that was when the students would get a huge smile on their face. The eyes is what would bring the little sculptures to life. It never failed, each and every time the eyes were made the students would then understand what they had created. Very cool to see that. 
So I was glad Paws Way decided to entertain my idea to have me teach a couple of Sculpting classes on their facilities. I feel it was a great success and they too were thrilled on the response they got from the patrons that they spoke with.  So good times all around.

This weekend I was teaching sculpting

This weekend I was teaching children and adults alike how to make miniature cartoon sculptures of their doggies.  
I had a blast,  the kids were really great and so were the adults. I took photos of the proud students displaying their works of art.  It was really nice to see the look on their faces when they were done and walking away happy.  The place was closed and people where still making the sculpts, we shut the place down, lol  It was a hit. Not bad for a first time out teaching sculpture.  Here are some pics of the students and their sculpted pets.

Finished and Mounted

Finished and Mounted on a black base. Finished off with my Gold Tag of Authenticity.
People if your eyes could only see the real thing. i am in disbelief on how good it turned out. 
I am so damn proud of this one. My skills keep getting better and better and I feel like I am on cloud nine because of it.  This project has been one of my best thus far. I keep saying that but it is true. Every time I do something new it is just better then the last. So I hope you enjoy this pc. It has taken me approximately 9 hours of hands on work to complete. Tedious detail that has not eluded my carving tools. The right look of beauty and character Big Ben possess.  I try to bring out the special character that each one of the dogs has when  I sculpt them.  
If you so chose to have me sculpt one of your dogs, I guaranty you will not be disappointed.
