Sculpture: Figure Construction & Anatomy (WEDNESDAY)

Ben Dierckx

Wednesdays
4pm - 7pm

This class will guide students through the process of making a small figurative sculpture. We will be using a comfortable and natural plastilina and include demonstrations as well as reviews. This course takes on the formidable task of learning to organize the complexity of the human body as a construction and create figurative art that makes a dramatic and bold statement. Design and anatomy secrets of the old masters will be shared with artists committed to mastering the human figure. This is an intense exploration of the human form with an academic attention to composition, structure, and surface. Students will be encouraged to develop a personal project, in which their individual needs will be considered. We aim to provide a basic understanding of the necessary techniques of figure sculpture and have organized this course for beginners, and artists with previous experience.
