Please email to reserve space prior to attendance as spaces are sometimes limited: [masked] Clay sculpting for beginners starts by copying classical casts by Michaelangelo and other classical sculptures. The Renaissance Atelier is devoted to the ideas and practice of the classical realism. Much in the current art world is superficial with little regard for the redevelopment of basic skills of draughtsmanship or accurate observation. The atelier system is based on students of varying abilities all working together with their teachers and being assigned a systematic progression of projects chosen to develop particular skills, each of which should be fully mastered before the next project is attempted. This was the traditional method of training artists , with students learning from each other under the guidance of the teacher and with more experienced students offering support to the less experienced. equipment: some clay and tools will be available to use for the first class you take. if you decide you would like to continue you will then need to purchase some of your own either in studio or in any art shop, materials list is on the website. Step 1. Sculpting exercises The first sculpting exercises will teach basic principles about the classic order of forms and shapes in the sculpting process. During the sculpting class you will learn how to use clay and get used to working with a the different tools. Teaching the importance of working with the layers of clay with the goal to achieve a realistic final product. Key objectives of the sculpting process: - To understand the underlying geometric forms in all objects and break these down to create the overall feel of the piece being copied. - Identify the vital facts of the cast, correct positioning of all the parts of the anatomy with special attention to volume and depth. - To try to create a basic likeness. Step 2. Copy of 3D Classical cast After step 1 you will learn to copy a 3D classical cast with an accurate approach, looking at proportions, volumes and textures to create a lifelike cast. After these stages we will start to look at the full head & torso as well as other harder casts and projects. The course will look at each student’s individual progression. This will determine how quickly the student is able to progress onto the next stages. The next stages will cover Copying of classical anatomical casts such as the eye, ear, nose, mouth, hand & foot progressing onto whole heads.

The Renaissance Atelier is devoted to the ideas and practice of the classical realism and a revisit to past techniques. Much in the current art world is superficial with little regard for the redevelopment of basic skills of draughtsmanship or accurate observation.

The Atelier system is based on students of varying abilities all working together with their teachers and being assigned a systematic progression of projects chosen to develop particular skills, each of which should be fully mastered before the next project is attempted. This was the traditional method of training artists , with students learning from each other under the guidance of the Master teacher.

By copying classical casts in the studio understanding shape, proportion and volume we teach you how to deconstruct the form and then develop the points which make everything realistic. Honing in on your seeing skills and understanding how to manipulate the medium to create wonderful pieces of art.
