Building a standing figure in clay using an internal armature
During this 8 week sculpting session we will focus our sculpting on the standing figure. Beginning and continuing sculptors are invited to sculpt from a live model independently, or with instructional help. The pose will be set up allow for the sculpting of a standing pose. For those interested, we will start with a hands-on-demonstration in building an internal armature, which will not require the traditional cutting out of armature, hollowing and reassembling of parts. This armature type is well suited for figures up to 20 inches in height. In addition, instructional help will be offered in anatomy and in sculpting styles and approaches.
