This August’s Life Size Figure Sculpture Masterclass

August 30th, 2019  |  Published in, Academy News

Our Life Size Figure Sculpture Masterclass had some fantastic results this August! Students created a full human figure from clay, working both with a life model and self-directed without a model. Lasting four weeks, each student completed a fully formed sculpture. The finished works are a testament to the course; they are fantastic studies of the model’s form.

The Masterclass is a truly immersive experience from start to finish. Starting with the construction of a steel black iron foundation, students then used clay to build the full figure. As well as developing the technical skills of measurements, plumbing, anatomy and clay application, students honed their creative skills, developed an understanding of sculptural texture and forms, and learned how to capture the model’s unique expression. The finished sculptures were both products of anatomical study and works of art!
