This workshop for all levels is an introduction to sculpting the figure in clay. From a live model, we will investigate the anatomical structure and identify the basic structure of the human figure. Students will progress through three stages of development. First, we will observe the model collecting information about movement and flow, volume, composition and personal interpretation. Next, we will draw the model from various angles. In the third stage, we will begin working with clay to develop the sculpture. Working on a 15 inches armature. We will explore volume and unity in space working to simplify the form as we refine shapes.
