Sculpture Marathon – with Bruce Gagnier

Summer 2020

Course Description

Modeling in clay is practiced from the live model to form a life size figure. Abstractions of the plastic idea, knowledge of how to describe the human figure, clay modeling techniques and cultural reference are practiced in relation to this goal. The elements of the life size figure as seen in classic examples from the past are studied in relation to technique and spontaneity. Personal vision is incorporated into this learning process. The form qualities of the human figure are discussed in group sessions.
