An Afternoon Sculpting the Male Torso

If you’re ever at the Ranch and just want to enjoy a leisurely afternoon consider taking Jose’s sculpting class.  It’s relaxing, meditative and fun.

These are some photos I took of the class.  There is definitely a process to sculpting the male torso and Jose makes it very easy to understand (and funny at times!).  I can’t give away his secrets here on this blog post, but I had never sculpted before and I think my torso turned out pretty darn good!  I’m only down here twice a week so I didn’t have much time to finish my sculpture, but if you’re a guest here you can continue to work on it throughout the week.  It’s actually quite an addicting process and I plan on trying Jose’s other sculpting class as well!

Jose teaches Sculpting the Male Torso on Tuesdays and also Sculpting Facial Features on Thursdays.
