Learn the principles of modelling the figure in clay! Designed to develop the student’s understanding of the form and structure of the human body, this course will be an intensive life study focusing on human anatomy and observation.
Working from a model in a standing pose for seven weeks, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of anatomy, the rhythms and movable masses of the body, proportion and language of sculptural form. Students will develop skills in armature building, clay modelling and training of the observational eye. In order to have optimal time with a model, this course is intended as an intensive life study only, not to complete a finished sculpture.
Students who would like to translate their work into a cast can do so by enrolling in a workshop class at the Tom Bass Studio. Suitable for beginners through to advanced levels, this course will teach the foundations of the classical figure in sculpture.
Fees: $670.30 (Earlybird); $745.30 (General)
