This seminar will introduce the fundamentals of sculpting with clay using a live model.
A step-by-step process of constructing an anatomically accurate human figure will be taught during this seminar, using additive and subtractive academic sculpting techniques. The participants will be guided though demonstrations and individual critiques to develop a better understanding of proportions, depth, form, and contour line in space while constructing their three-dimensional sculpture.
The workshop can cater participants of any background or skill level and age, as the instructor will address each individual’s needs separately.
It is nonetheless most valuable to students preparing a portfolio for Schools of Fine Arts, university students of similar disciplines seeking specialization in specific fields and finally, amateur and professional artists who want to enrich their skillset.
