Join master sculptor Josh Guge for this week-long seminar on carving and painting a Great Blue Heron! These demonstration videos were made during a class he taught at his studio in Elgin. The seminar includes 37 demonstration videos ranging from 5 to 25 minutes in length. The videos are loaded with important information you need to learn how to take a block of wood and turn it into a work of art!
Josh covers every detail in the process from roughing out the basic shape of the bird, to adding intricate textures details. He also demonstrates the entire painting process including details on the bird's feet.
Josh is known for simplifying this complex process and helping students of all skill levels reach their personal goals.
