Over the Top and Out of the
Beginners to Advanced
This year, I am planning three
classes which will be geared toward individual needs! We will
be guided by your strengths and your weaknesses. Beginners, please
bring very good photos of previous work or one or more of your original
sculptures. This will greatly aid me in helping you.
Beginners only need to complete a head as directed in my video, Anatomy
of Age I. Those who have taken a previous class, please contact
me for evaluating what you want or might need in class. This way, I
can make sure you have all your supplies needed to complete your desired
This will be a really fun class, so
leave your fears and anxiety at home - you won't need them! I
specialize in one-on-one with my students, therefore, class is limited to
2012 Class Dates:
September 17 - 21
Five full days of must
have teaching, PLUS an optional extra "Play" day on the
Saturday following class for those who wish to join in on a day of
"antiquing" and lunch with the gang. You'll learn how to
shop! I know that all of you probably have a black belt in shopping,
but I am going to give you some money saving tips on shopping for your
sculptures to save the big bucks! I'll show you how to find treasures for
your sculptures in the most unlikely places.
If you've already purchased my
videos and you feel that you would like some "live" instruction,
class/seminar is for you, also.
This class is the most
comprehensive instruction you'll EVER find!
Your mind and notes will overflow with
all the information you'll take home. The seminar is conducted in my
home in Dalton Gardens, Idaho. It's only about 35 minutes from
Spokane (Washington) International Airport.
READ WHAT PREVIOUS STUDENTS SAID
TAKING THIS CLASS:
"Judith is a 'teacher's teacher'. I've
learned more in 5 days than from any other videos or classes from other
"Judith met me where I was at . . . taught
me what I myself needed; even showed me why I was making the mistakes
and how to easily correct them."
"I was intimidated when I first came to
Judith's class, but her humor and easy-going teaching style made me not
only relax, but I had fun while I was learning more than I ever imagined
about making a realistic sculpture."
"I went home from Judith's seminar with
enough knowledge & ability to continue making wonderful sculptures.
The previous instruction I had did my head for me, so when I got home, I
realize I had a completed head but no workable knowledge of how to do it
Class instruction includes:
"simplified" anatomy of a realistic sculpted head, miniature to life
sculpt/articulate realistic hands (including wrinkles, veins, & age
facial expressions; teeth, tongue, wrinkles, even how to age the eyes

Learn the multiple
ways to make easy armatures for your miniature to life size
AS TIME PERMITS, we
will also discuss subjects on:
Solutions for those
inevitable breaks & mishaps
Students will be supplied with a list of
hotels/motels that are in close proximity to class. This info will
include price ranges, shuttle info, and rental car info. Previous
students have shared rooms and transportation to save on expenses.
If you wish to do so, contact me for assistance. Many of the hotels
provide breakfast with room accommodations.
Lunches during the week of class will be
catered with a menu provided on the first day of class. I will

will be an option for health conscious meals, please let me know if you
