Please email to reserve space prior to attendance: [masked] or call/text on[masked] Clay sculpting for beginners, copying classical casts by Michaelangelo and other classical sculptures. The Renaissance Atelier is devoted to the ideas and practice of the classical realism and accurate observation. The atelier system is based on students of varying abilities all working together with their teacher 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. Step 1. Sculpting exercises The first sculpting exercises teaches 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 all the different tools. 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 your own personal projects. The course will look at each student’s individual progression. Each student is able to progress onto the next stages as soon as they feel ready. The next stages will cover Copying of classical anatomical casts such as the eye, ear, nose, mouth, hand, foot progressing onto reliefs, whole heads, torsos etc. Wembley Park, studio BB01, Elvin Gardens HA9 0GH Look forward to seeing you there!
