The human figure has endless potential for narrative and emotional expression. Bodies are complex structures, but we will approach them with a simple building technique that anyone can master. During this workshop students will produce one full-figure sculpture with a solid building technique, which they will learn to hollow and re-assemble. Basic proportions and anatomy will be demonstrated, as will the use of a simple armature.
Magda will demonstrate a solid construction technique in clay, which will allow for the greatest flexibility to change our poses as we build. Magda will also demonstrate hollowing the figures out, so that you can complete the hollowing process on your own.
Small maquette studies will be created and used for inspiration. Scale of sculptures will be limited to 24” in one direction to provide enough time for detailing. Bring visual inspiration to class in the form of images/sketches. All skill levels are welcome.
(some students may not be ready to hollow during the workshop and may wish to complete that process on their own after the demonstration)
