Using the human figure as a subject, this course will introduce the fundamental techniques of clay modeling and observation. The main focus of the course is on a series of daily sessions sculpting one sustained pose from a life model. Students will also complete exercises requiring them to reproduce body features from plaster models. This course is a perfect opportunity for those who have no experience sculpting the figure from life or have done some figure sculpting before and are looking to improve their skills. In this workshop we will be sculpting a 1/3 scale standing figure. The course will take students through the steps of building a standing figure in clay using basic armatures and additive clay application methods. Students will become familiar with modeling on an armature and the procedures of developing an initial gestural set-up. This introductory course will focus on the simple construction of basic forms and anatomical structures through observation of the model. Students will be introduced to measuring and scaling techniques to create scaled figure studies, while learning to identify proportion and relationships of mass. Students will be encouraged to investigate sculptors and Installation artists using the human form in contemporary art.
