This course is a rare opportunity to work on a full life size figure within a small class size. Working with your tutors Laura Postle and Valentina Zlatarova, students will develop and hone the skills required to produce large scale figure work. Sculpting in both a guided environment from direct observation of a life model, as well as learning how to work self directed without a model, you will spend a five weeks fully immersed in the sculpting process.
Starting with building an armature using a provided steel back iron, an approach to figure work that will be strong yet flexible, with room for interpretation, will be taught. As well as developing technical skills of measurements, plumbing, anatomy and clay application, students will hone their creative skills, develop an understanding of sculptural texture and forms, and learn how to capture the model’s unique expression to create a piece of art.
To apply for this course, please send an email with a few images of your figurative sculpture work to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Art Academy team at email@example.com
