Zoom in on the self-portrait in 3D with Ingrid Morley

1A Clara St
Erskineville NSW 2043

Sunday 20 September from 4pm to 5pm


General: $395.00

The mystery of the self-image has held a powerful place in art history, expressing, exploring and questioning ideas about identity through time, from the Renaissance (Bernini), German expressionists (Käthe Kollwitz) and the painter Frida Kahlo.

The challenge is to find the basic 3D structure in clay through observation from your mirror image. Set yourself up for your self-portrait, control light and collect essential information to inform your work – including the use of tools.

Construct an armature for the self-portrait (a limited number of basic armatures are available from the school). Then work in clay. Form up and complete a self-portrait with two online group meetings to book end the course and weekly one-on-one online assistance in the form of image exchanges and feedback over 7 weeks.

You may choose to work with or without an armature, as you can work in relief (2D) or free standing in 3D. This choice can be discussed with Ingrid. Your final work can either be kiln fired or cast in plaster from a plaster mould.

Fee: $395.00*

(NB Students will be sent a materials list that they will need to purchase for themselves)
