Working from the life model and using a step by step classical approach students will learn how to sculpt the figure in water based clay. The full process of sculpting in water based clay will be covered. Starting from creating a suitable armature structure, to sculpting the model and finally hollowing for drying and firing purposes. This course is suitable for all levels and will accommodate beginners as well as experienced sculptors. While the course will focus on a more realistic rendering of the human form, those wanting to explore a more exaggerated, stylized or abstract approach to figure sculpting are also welcome to do so. Great emphasis will be put on proportions, planar structure, anatomy, sculptural design esthetic and finishing. All the basic tools and techniques of sculpting in clay will be covered. Many demonstrations by the instructor will be done. This small class structure will offer a lot of one on one attention to students.
