This intensive online course is designed for those who always wanted to sculpt and it is an introduction to understand shape, volume and drawing in order to create a head in clay.
From absolute beginners.
Online courses in Sculpture are taught on a one to one basis in a form of live demonstrations according to the skills and knowledge that each individual wishes to achieve at the end. It’s not a pre recorded lesson as I will practically demonstrate making on the day and cover questions and difficulties that you have met while making a 3D object at you own time. It’s an excellent course both for people with some experience in sculpture or starting from scratch. Passion is a necessary element for any new to sculpture student as generally sculpture involves a lot of slow processes to get a finished piece and there is some frustration when handling materials for the first time. Financially this course is cheaper and you will not need to move from your own home. It will be advised to work between the lessons and bring work done for discussion and corrections every week.
About the tutor:
I am a professional Greek sculptress, graduated from the Royal College of Art and Design in London with a ten-year teaching experience in various Art Colleges.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
a) make a suitable armature for a portrait head
b) understand the use of some of the muscles in the face.
c) use clay effectively to enhance the mood and character of a portrait head.
d) prepare the head for firing.
In person course starts from £35.00 pounds an hour and hours to be agreed between tutor and students (usually weekdays and morning).
Some space to work, some time (approximately 1-2 hours) to practice each day, your passion and commitment.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Danae so much I booked a second one. She is enthusiatic about what is possible, is always well prepared and encouraging. I've attempted projects with her I didnt think I was capable of! She has given me confidence to try challenging projects on my own too. I would certainly recommend working with her.
Response from Danae's Art Lessons:It always takes two Kate and I found working with you inspiring too!
I learned so much in just an hour! Danae is a born teacher, giving clear instruction and encouragement. She took time to listen to what I wanted, took on board my previous skills and experience, adapting my lesson accordingly. She is enthusiastic and brimming with ideas! I would definitely recommend this course!
Thank you Danae for this excellent and meaningful course. The online instructions were really straightforward and I was really impressed with the attention placed in the organization of the structure of my session. The online delivery was ideal for me as it allowed me to work around my family commitments while I enhanced my skills in sculpting. The session was tailored to my individual needs and this supported my learning further. Danae could easily spot my weaknesses as her enthusiasm ensured an atmosphere supporting the exchange of ideas. All my questions were fully addressed and Danae is an outstanding professional who manages to inspire students. Really enjoyed the course. It was an amazing learning opportunity and I look forward to continuing my lessons with Danae.
I have started a course with Danae and she is very patient and enthusiastic! Danae is very thorough and organised in teaching the process of learning how to sculpt, from drawing to armature to materials and so on. I highly recommend her!
Response from Danae's Art Lessons:Thank you Fiona! It’s a potty I can’t do a review my students too.
I had a fantastic introductory lesson, which I did along with my mother. Danae was brilliant. Its amazing how much we learned in one hour! Due to Covid, we had to use Zoom - but it worked so well! Thanks Danae - I'm definitely hooked thanks to you! Very much recommended for anyone!
I am 76 and was given this first one hour course for my birthday. My son, aged 50, and I spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable hours. Danae was so patient and observant through every step and kindly put us right on many points. An amazing teacher. Thank you very much Danae.
I can highly recommend Danae, the course succeeded my expectations. We discussed via email what I’d like learn but I have come away learning much much more. Its was clear she had spent time constructing the course to meet my needs and she went through each step methodically and concisely. She welcomed discussion and questions at every point. No question was too dumb to ask ! Her enthusiasm for her subject shone through and it is infectious. I have come away not only with knowledge but feeling very inspired to develop my sculpting and drawing further.
