Expressive Figure in Clay
Ju 25, 2016 to Aug 5, 2016
Create Expressive clay figures and learn a variety of new techniques and skill in the process. This workshop is prefect for seasoned sculptor who seeks a new prespective on the craft. We cover a range of hand building techniques and skill necessary to create small figuretive sculptures. The emphasis is no thoughful and interpretative approaches to figure modeling with a focus on composition, gesture and vivid surface treatment as well as individual direction and personal symbolism. We concentrate on the development of additional persentation strategies and the contextualization of these figures to further expand the narrative.
