Sculpture Exploration: Figurative Abstraction
In this course, students will work with clay 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. This course will focus on interpreting the figure through stylization and abstraction. 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. The class includes all required materials. Students may choose to purchase supplementary materials.
This course meets in the AGO's Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School. Participants must be 18 or older. Space is limited.
