About This Class

Get trained in clay sculpting and make a Ganapati idol without using any mold.

The course is about learning how to make an eco-friendly idol of Ganapati using wet clay and some very basic tools. This course is taught using video lectures and I have used some presentations slides to explain the materials used, answer FAQs and summarize the course.

This course is divided into 4 sections. We will be starting from making the basic structure and then go on to modelling the 4 hands, making the face, the trunk. Finishing touches will be added by making ornaments and other details.

You should do this course if

- you enjoy learning something new

- you like playing in clay and creating objects with it

- you are interested in sculpture as an art form

- you want to make a Ganapati idol on your own

If you have any questions, you can post them in the questions section and I'll respond to those.

By the end of this course you will master the clay modelling techniques using which You can make clay models of other objects or animals as per your wish.

See you in the course!
