Learn more about sculpting with Romain Van den Bogaert !

Romain Van den Bogaert regularly shares with students his remarkable process to design and sculpt classic portraits as well as fantasy inspired busts, from the basic forms to the finest details.

Students will receive one to one sculpting instruction using various kinds of clays (plasticines or polymer clays).

They also will be encouraged to explore their own styles.


Romain?s courses are tailored for designers working in industries as various as movie, VFX or game, drawers, digital or traditional sculptors as well as hobbyists.

Previous students range from beginners to professional artists.

Prior traditional sculpting experience will help but is NOT required. Romain will adjust his methodology and instructions upon each student’s skill level.

The purpose of Romain?s workshops is to teach students how to follow a structured sculpting process. Various subject are reviewed using educational references and examples: Anatomy, facial expressions, gender variation, aging, composition or dynamism.

Students also learn how to make varied textures (wrinkles, hairs, fur, horns etc. ..). Portrait projects will vary in size from 1/3 to 1/8 to life-size.

Finished pieces are not the goal of the classes though students are welcome to keep any or all of the projects that they have created.
