   This class is perfect for taxidermy beginners or experienced students who want to focus on the intricacies of mammal faces. We will be working with specimens that have already been skinned, prepped and tanned; many commercial taxidermy schools use prepped specimens to teach in exactly this way. We will however be taking some advanced steps to customize our forms and ensure they're mounted to museum quality standards

   Because these specimens are from salvage or abatement, we don't have all of one kind. However, that's good for you because we have  different ones to choose from. Each one below has it's own special (and honestly adorable) facial characteristics:

    • Raccoon - 0 Available
    • Coyote - 0 Available
    • Young Red Fox - 0 Available

In this class you will learn to utilize a commercial form, create/insert your own ear-liners, shape nose, set eyes, tuck eye lids, tuck mouth and practice the finer aspects of grooming hair/whiskers. Students will also focus on sculpting realistic expressions and how to properly utilize reference material. We will provide take-home kits and instructions on painting & finishing touches at home. 

All supplies, tools & specimens will be provided and are included in the class fee. We will be working on various specimens that were collected as nuisance animals or as roadkill from states legal to collect in. Deaths not related to the art.

Class will be held at our private studio in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA. Address provided in confirmation email before class to ensure privacy.

*Please be aware of our STRICT cancellation policy. We are a very small / niche business and must adhere to it'Switching' classes is considered a cancelation.*
