Sculpture and the Human Form

Using a live model as an inspiration, interpret the human form according to your own sensibilities. While working primarily in clay, other mediums such as wax, wood, metal, and plaster will be introduced. The work will focus on creating a 3-dimensional form, whether full figure, fragments, or bas-relief. All levels are welcome.

Sculpture: Realism to Abstraction

Achieve your artistic intent in sculpture by learning to incorporate new innovations along with the formal elements of anatomy, composition, form, space, and values. Through individual instruction, class discussions and critiques, you’ll develop a critical eye and objective approach in order to distinguish the necessary from the unnecessary, moving toward the completion of a cohesive sculpture. Work from both your imagination and a model, creating images with a unique, personal voice.
