In this course, students will work with low fire clay to sculpt a portrait bust and plaster to continue their study of the human form; they will develop skills of observation and proportion, while working with a life model closely guided by instruction. Supplementing skill development, they will receive exposure to current applications of life modeling and sculpture techniques in a contemporary art context.

Students will be given demonstrations and encouraged to utilize a variety of techniques when working with a life model. They will have the opportunity to develop traditional life sculpture skills within the classroom environment, while simultaneously interacting with, observing, and discussing how these techniques are practiced and applied in contemporary art.

This course is suitable for students with some sculpture experience and includes the cost of most materials.

Please note that there are no classes on Monday, October 13, and Tuesday, October 14.
