Employing both the tactile and visual senses, Écorché sculpture is an extremely effective method for committing the complex forms of the human figure to memory.  This 5 day intensive course will focus on the skull and muscles of the face, as well as features. Students will work in oil-based clay on a fixed armature, at full scale. Working from 3 dimensional  casts, they will model a life-size skull. Then, using photo and textbook reference, as well a live portrait model when appropriate, they will sculpt individual muscles of the face and cranium onto the skull on one side only, leaving the skull visible on the opposite side. The finished model allows students to visualize the deep and superficial layers of facial anatomy simultaneously.

Teaching methods will include lectures, demonstrations and individual feedback. 

This class is appropriate for students of all experience levels as an introduction to the practice of écorché, or the opportunity for the more experienced student to hone their knowledge of the skull and facial anatomy.

  • Tools will be available to borrow in class, or students may bring their own.

Students should also bring:

  • Required textbook: Artistic Anatomy, Dr. Paul Richer  (ISBN-10: 0823002977 ISBN-13: 978-0823002979)
  • Sketchbook and pencils for note-taking and problem solving in class
