Gesture Studies: Sketches in Clay


Recommended for animators!

Come practice the techniques used to sculpt the human figure, with the emphasis on capturing the essence, rather than the anatomy, of a figure. Focusing on shape and form, and paying special attention to gesture, students will sculpt from a live model holding quick, expressive poses. This is a great way to build speed and accuracy in capturing human gesture and proportion. Working in water-based clay, students will generate at least 12 short-session gesture pieces, and 2 long-pose pieces, thereby sharpening their observational skills. All levels are welcome. This class includes all instruction, tools, model fees, clay and firings.
