The Hollow Figure
6 in stock
In this course students will be guided through the making of a hollowed body in clay. Using a combination of pinch, clay and slab techniques, students will each sculpt the human form alongside the instructor. Poses and degree of abstraction or realism will be up to the desires of each student. We will cover basic ideas in proportion, anatomy, and gesture. The objective of the course will be to complete one roughly 12 inch sculpture in direct conversation with the history of figure sculpture while still producing an original, stylized work.
Students will receive two 25-pound bags of cone 6 clay but may need to purchase additional clay for their personal projects. All other materials and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week.
Unfinished student work should be picked up within two weeks of the last class.
