with Brandon Roy
5/4/17 - 7/6/17
This class is an excellent introduction to the tools, materials and techniques used for classical sculpture. Students will use water based clay to sculpt a portrait from a live model over the course of 10 three hour sessions. I carefully guide students through the process of sculpting, instilling in them the technical approach and discipline necessary to capture the essence of the model. I stress the fundamentals of correct tool usage, clay application and measuring techniques required for all forms of sculpture, however I also allow the student enough freedom to introduce their own styles and personalities into their work. I recommend students new to classical sculpting complete two portrait classes before moving onto figure sculpting. The classical techniques taught in this class will provide an excellent foundation for the student to move on to creating any style of sculpture whether it be traditional or modern.
Bell Casting with Kevin Larson
Saturday's 4pm - 6pm
5/6/17 thru 6/24/17
In this class students will follow the entire lost wax bronze casting process. From making your bell in wax, to decorating and cleaning your wax form, casting your bell in bronze. Students will be guided by the instructor but they must utilize their own creativity to finish their project.
with Brandon Roy
Over the course of 10 weeks students will learn the classical techniques necessary to successfully sculpt the human figure. Working with a nude model students will sculpt 1/3 life-size figure sculptures in water-based clay. Advanced sculpting techniques will be covered in this class so it is recommended that students have taken my portrait sculpting class or have prior sculpting experience. This class is intended to improve a sculptors skill level and an emphasis is placed on learning instead of producing a finished sculpture.
Life Figure Drawing Sessions
9:30am - 12:30pm
Draw, sculpt or paint! You can work in any media but be sure to bring your own supplies. We alternate every week between male and female models. Typically the model will take three 5 minute poses for everyone to warm up and than a long pose for the rest of the session. These sessions are uninstructed. Please arrive before 9:30am so that you can set up before the model begins to pose.
