From the foundation of a firm belief in good craftsmanship and the value of working from life, Untitled presents another in this ongoing series of courses in sculpting the human figure. The workshop is open to those with nothing more than the desire to create, all the way to seasoned sculptors who appreciate the opportunity to work from life and the ease of doing so that the course provides. The fact of combining practitioners of a broad range of skills creates a very dynamic environment and means that one has as much to learn from other participants as one does from the model and the personal instruction you'll have access to.
This workshop focuses on modeling in ball & ceramic clay with the intention of engaging the human body creatively in art-making and self-expression. The emphasis is on a rigorous engagement with the body through techniques of measurement and observation. Familiarity with the body and its workings is the only way to successfully and powerfully put the body to better use in symbolic and conceptual works that have some figurative foundation, regardless of their degree of abstraction, hence, a workshop like this is perfect for people working at all levels to take their work further. Molding and casting can be arranged.
