4 Session Sculpting The Figure Class
Mondays from 5-8pm (see dates below)
In this class we will sculpt from direct observa&on of a live model in the same pose for four sessions. Students will learn a logical approach to developing the
observa&onal skills needed to create an accurate and dynamic figure sculpture in clay. Emphasis will be on understanding, propor&on, gesture, anatomy, and clay
modeling. Each student will receive quality instruc&on with a special aUen&on to maximizing individual poten&al. The teaching method will include individual
instruc&on, group cri&ques, as well as presenta&ons of contemporary and old masters sculptors.
The figures will be sculp&ng using water based kiln fired clay. Students may choose to have their sculpture kiln fired for an addi&onal cost at a local ceramic
studio. This course is suitable for students of all levels
This is a great class if you have never sculpted before and would like to gain some confidence and technical skills before attempting to sculpt a
figure. There will be an opportunity to either dry and fire your clay sculptures at a local ceramic studio or you can take a mold making class at
