Abstract Figurative Sculpture
This course will introduce you to the techniques needed to sculpt the figure or portrait from a model. Using a life model as a starting point you will discover how to develop abstract sculptures in plaster and clay.
The post war sculpture of British artists such as Henry Moore and Lynn Chadwick introduced a new language of forms in carving, modelling and construction and we will explore these three fundamental processes that are the basis of all sculptural language.
You’ll learn how to prepare the sculpture for the kiln should you wish to fire the completed work. Firing is done at an additional cost.
The course is suitable for any level of experience in making sculpture.
