Figure Construction & Anatomy for Artists

This course will introduce students to the process of making figurative sculptures through perceptual skills dictated by conceptual knowledge. Design and anatomy secrets of the old masters will be shared with artists committed to mastering the human figure. Figure Construction and Anatomy for Artists takes on the formidable task of how to organize the complexity of the human body as a construction and create 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. Students will be guided to develop a personal project, in which their individual needs will be considered. An introduction to sculpting tools, as well as molding and casting, will be offered along with demonstrations and discussion. This course is structured for beginners and artists with demonstrations and discussion. This course is structured for beginners and artists with previous experience, and aims to provide a base in the necessary techniques of sculpture. Open to all levels.

Sculpture: The Form in Space

Students will develop the confidence to create a figurative work from the model, as well as to understand why we create forms in space. Many media, other than clay, will be considered and may include wax, and foam. (Wax may be cast into bronze if desired at an additional cost.) The work will be historically contextualized and related to the contemporary scene. This course is open to all levels and, while not necessary, students will be encouraged to continue for the entire year. The course will help to translate the student’s ideas into a reality.
