New class info!

Hi all,
Here's more info in regards to my class.

Classes will start the first Saturday of September at 11am pacific time ( Los Angeles time).

We will meet online each Saturday at the same time.

Payment can be made through Pay pal to: [email][/email]

I accept any major credit/debit cards

**payment is due in full by August 31st.

***Class is limited to 15 people.

Many people have contacted me so please guys, first to pay will be the first 15 people officially in.

Payments cannot be reimbursed, but can be taken as credit for our second course in case you cannot take this course for whatever reasons.

Also the cost of $200 is an introductory price, next course will be a bit higher in cost, but then again each course will cover different stuff, but this will happen in the near future. For now let us focus on the class at hand .

**The class will be taught in a way that either Pros or newcomers can learn.**

Each class will last 3 hours, and will each take place on Saturdays at the same time ( 11:am L.A. Time/pacific time)

I cannot record sessions yet, but I will do my best to be able to offer that in very near the future.

Up to 5 people can show me their webcams ( while I show mine) ( if you have an HD webcam it is better) so I can see your progress.

As for our first class you do not need any materials.

For our second class you will need materials in case you choose to follow along , but mostly if you so desire you can just watch throughout all 5 sessions.

If you choose to follow along please be aware that during the first class I will give you a small list of materials required and give you a small demo, but an important one.

The purpose is for you to get acquainted with the materials/tools you may need. I will show you how to make your own basic tools. Also I will give you as much information on where to get these supplies here in the U.S. but mostly you should be able to get most stuff in any other places in the world. You can get clay/in most countries, in case you have a hard time finding sculpey, you can always use regular clay from a local art store, or buy your stuff online.

Thank you very much for your interest in taking my course!

HD Webcam Sculpting classes with Erick Sosa

Hi guys,
I am just gauging interest for some online sculpting classes. For the longest time I have wanted to share with people how I go about sculpting my pieces. The technology was just not there until just a few months ago. Technically I want to open my studio doors ( virtually) to anyone interested in learning, and anyone interested in getting a behind the scenes pass into actual projects being developed.

I also want to use this tool to connect with fans throughout the world, during free meetings or "open house/studio sessions" scheduled once a month etc". Basically anyone with a computer can come to my studio and check what is new, and trust me I am working on a lot of cool stuff, some I cannot show, but there are some that I have permission to show, and that is where the fun begins, you will be a guest in my humble 2 car garage studio :)

Ok let's move on to the class info:

As of tonight, I have successfully shared my first online TEST class , we will start in two weeks guys.
I am thinking classes will be once a week for 3 hours each class, for a total of 4 classes, and perhaps a fifth class for review and questions etc.... I am really excited to say the least, as I can basically share my studio, a bit of my knowledge, and my crazy creature design ideas with whomever is interested.
***I would later on make my creations (developed throughout each course) available as model kits for you to study in person. People that sign up for my class will get a special discount for each model kit I make.
We will cover and explore together the following:

Sculpting a creature bust in Super sculpey
Primary form,
Expressions that bring your sculpt to life,
Secondary form,
Wax transfer,
wax sculpting essentials.
The tentative price would be $200 per person for 4 weeks
Bonus 5th class for review, questions/answers etc.

I would take payment through pay pal only. Classes would be taught through Gotomeeting with a limit of 15 people per session and 15 people per course as well.

Streaming will be in HD, with an HD camera for your viewing pleasure.
I just had a test class tonight , and it works just swimmingly, the resolution is incredible! I can also view you web cam, as to check the progress of your own creations, and give you better input. This technology is real cool guys!

Here's a lit of features:
If anyone is interested please email me at :
Thank you guys!
