Sculpting the Head and Neck from Life with Yiannis G. Koromias
Join us in this unique workshop which will introduce the fundamentals of sculpting a portrait in clay using a live model.
-What will you learn through this workshop?
The workshop will include a step-by-step process of constructing the head in an accurate and anatomically correct manner in clay using academic sculpting methods and techniques. The participants will be guided though demonstrations and individual critiques so as to develop a better understanding of proportions, depth, form and contour line in space. Through this methodical process each participant will produce a 3-dimensional clay portrait. Due to the fact that special individual attention will be given to guide participants, the workshop will cater for interested individuals, irrespective of their age, previous knowledge or experience.
-Who should participate:
This workshop is suitable for students preparing a portfolio for Schools of Fine Arts, university students of similar disciplines seeking specialisation in specific fields and finally, amateur and professional artists who want to enrich their skillset.
November 22 – December 14 / Eight three-hour long sessions
