Thursday Evening Figure Sculpture – with Leonid Lerman

Course Description

What is sculpture?  Is human body a sculpture?  Does sculpture have structure?  Is structure sculptural?  Can we see structure?  Does geometry help?  Do we need anatomy?  These and other questions are being addressed in this intensive workshop focused on furthering the understanding of ”sculptural idea”, using human forms with its sense of unity and connections of various parts, their spatial arrangement, balance, proportions, weight relations and tensions.

Course Outline

Based on traditional methods this course will address issues of:
Composition and movement;
Proportion and scale
Weight and balance;
Structure and symmetry;
Rhythms and connections;
Tone, line and perspective.

Using conceptual geometric modeling, the students will study structure, or, in other words – the architecture of the human body in search of unity and connections of all parts of the body, their interrelations, tensions and rhythms.
