Figure Construction & Anatomy for Artists
Chris Raccioppi

Mondays
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. | Studio 6
Course Fee: $165 

This course will introduce students to the process of making figurative sculptures through perceptual skills dictated by conceptual knowledge. The course takes on the formidable task of organizing the complexity of the human body as a construction and creating figurative art that makes a dramatic and bold statement. It is a journey through the human form with particular attention directed to mass, volume, structure and principles of anatomy. Artists will explore design and anatomy secrets of the old masters and will be guided to develop a personal project, in which their individual needs will be considered. An introduction to sculpting tools, will be offered along with demonstrations and discussion. This course is structured for beginners as well as artists with previous experience, and aims to provide a base in the necessary techniques of sculpture. Open to all levels.
