• Introduction-Intermediate
  • Sculpture

Employing the classical approach, students will develop their sculptural and observational skills. Students will learn about armature building, materials and tools for sculpting. This course will follow a step-by-step approach to figure sculpting and will allow students to develop their skills while studying a specific body part at a time and the entire body.  Students will work from direct observation using classical plaster casts of anatomical figures, the human skeleton, and then move to the life model. Each body part study will be broken down into simple stages of Mass conception and/or Ecorche (anatomy) with an emphasis on proportion, planar structure, bony landmarks, muscle groups and points of origin and insertion.


12-weeks: Base Tuition: $475 + Material/Model fee $135 = Total $610


6-weeks: Base Tuition: $290 + Material/Model fee $75 = Total $365

Notes: This introductory level course is suitable for beginners and intermediate sculptors. This course covers studies in the human figure; a nude model will be used.
