Elizabeth Allison
Direct Plaster  Demonstration

Demonstration:
September 15
Saturday, 1:00 pm–4:30pm
Fee: $20
Enrollment limited to 17 students

Sculpting directly in plaster is an exciting, immediate way to create a permanent artwork.  Plaster allows the flexibility of softer modeling materials such as clay, and the capacity for detail and refinement found in harder material such as stone.  Once mastered, plaster is liberating to work with, giving the artist the best qualities of several mediums. This workshop consists of two parts: an introductory demonstration and a workshop.  Armature and tools will be discussed, and workshop students will receive intensive individual instruction.  The workshop is open to all levels.

Elizabeth Allison studied at the Art Students League and received a B.F.A. from the University of Michigan.  She is the recipient of the Raluca Popescu Memorial Scholarship, a Nessa Cohen Grant, and three Elizabeth Greenshields Grants.  She had a Model to Monument Participant in 2010-2011, and has a monumental sculpture in Riverside Park South.  She was a visiting artist at Buffalo State College and is a technical instructor at the Art Students League.
