November 11 - 16, 2019
Location: Brian Booth Craig Studios in Pennsylvania
This is an intensive six-day course on the techniques and traditions of figure sculpture. Emphasis will be placed upon the systematic study of proportions, basic anatomy, composition, and gesture. This course is also designed to give students a greater understanding and appreciation for the variety of sculptural practices that employ the human form. In addition to modeling the figure from life, this course will include lectures, presentations, discussions, and demonstrations. In this workshop, students will work directly from a model to create a 1/3 scale figure in plastiline over an aluminum armature. This course will entail a total of six studio days with a live model, six hours per day, evening lectures and demos, plus open studio hours in the evenings. Space is limited!
OPTIONAL: MOLD-MAKING WORKSHOP

Participants will learn to make brush-on silicone rubber molds with a urethane plastic mother mold. Tools will be provided for use during the workshop, and materials are included in the fees.
