• Introduction-Intermediate
  • Sculpture

Students will learn how to go from a concept design or conceptual vision to the creation of a finished sculpture. The subject matter will range from animal sculpture to imaginary figurative sculpture. Various sculpting styles will be considered going from realistic to loose and sketchy, animated and abstract. The course will explore working with various types of clays and encourage the use of other sculpting mediums such as wax, plaster and found objects. We will go over the practical aspect of creating environmental settings, clothing, props and multiple figure compositions. A particular attention will be given to sculpting surface details such as skin, fur, hair, scales and wrinkles. This course will also cover the creation of character maquettes and stop-motion characters.

10 Weeks: Base Tuition: $422 + Materials Fee: $80 = Total: $502

Notes: This course accommodates both beginner and advanced students. Figure sculpture experience is recommended but not essential.
