Campbell Sculpture Center
This workshop is for aspiring crime scene investigators and those interested in art. The course will be taught by Roy Paschal, a well-known forensic artist, retired from the South Carolina State Crime Laboratory. “The class is a good match for a variety of disciplines – those interested in facial anatomy, sculpting, law enforcement investigation, or general interest,” Paschal said. Students will have the method seen on popular crime television dramas at their fingertips as they learn the 3-D technique of facial reconstruction. This process allows a face to be constructed using modeling clay. A skull casting from an actual forensic case will be used for the class. At the conclusion of the course, students will be provided with a photograph of the victim to determine the accuracy of their reconstruction. Law enforcement often uses this technique as a method to identify unknown individuals. Museums have also used this method for historical recreations.
