Class description:

The seated figure in sculpture provides a wide range of expressive possibilities and presents different technical challenges than the standing figure. 

In this 5-day intensive workshop, students will work from life, modeling a seated 28-inch figure on a flexible wire armature in oil-based clay. Teaching methods will include demonstrations, lectures, discussions, and  individual feedback.  The focus will be on establishing the proportions of the major masses of the body, composing them to maximize the gesture, and describing the three dimensional forms of the figure, as expressed in the seated pose. 

Note: Casting will not be covered in the workshop. Students coming from out of town may choose to ship their clay piece home.
