About the course

There are few animals I love more than turtles. Their expressive eyes, wrinkly necks, and colors—oh my! I am awed by turtles’ vibrant shells, and bumpy patterned skin. Turtles are slow-walking, reptilian works of art, and there is no better art medium with which to explore their exuberant designs than colorful polymer clay.

In this course I will teach students my method for creating a turtle out of polymer clay. We will begin by shaping a turtle shell. We’ll “armor” the shell with clay scales sliced from colorful millefiori canes inspired by the patterns of real turtles. I will show students how to sculpt the turtle’s head, legs, and plastron (bottom shell), as well as how to put everything together—which is the trickiest part! Along the way we’ll discuss tools for adding texture, tips for making turtle eyes, how to make land tortoises, and painting options. By Day 3, we’ll have created a realistic turtle that is full of personality!

This class is appropriate for students who have some experience working with polymer clay and making simple polymer clay canes (eg. bullseye cane, Skinner blend, etc.)
