An ideal start point for those wishing to explore sculpture techniques and ideas. This course covers both foundation technical skills and a creative exploration of different materials and ways of working. Sculpture is wonderfully fun and creative and with some simple skills taught, great results can be achieved. The first half of the term comprises three weeks of figurative sculpture in clay with a life model and two weeks of portraiture with another life model, also in clay. The second half of the term is an introduction to plaster, wire and other materials, culminating in a personal project. Students leave the course with a strong foundation of sculpture skills as well as an individual approach to the practice.
Stone CarvingCourse Code: EC2204010 Tutor: Ben Newman Course Dates: Wednesdays 5th July - 23rd August Days: 8 Times: 6.30pm - 9.00pm Experience Level: All Levels Fee: £255 (without stone) Location: Art Academy London, 165A Mermaid Court, SE1 1HR £255.00
Primarily a practical course, you will gain a structured understanding of stone as a material, learn basic carving techniques and discover ways of being creative with this wonderful medium. Through practising all of these aspects, they will come together in the creation of your finished piece of work. Using your initial sketches of what you would like to carve (plan view, front view and section) to help understand the form before modelling it in clay, followed by one-to-one discussion, you will then quickly move into carving to progress your ideas into stone.
Please note that there is an additional fee for initial purchase of stone, which varies depending on the type of stone you wish to use. Art Academy staff are able to advise ahead of booking.
