Course description

Sculpture with Life Model

Sculpture with Life Model [HDF4424G]: Overview

The aim of this course is to learn the principal sculpture techniques, model from life and gain the confidence to realise finished sculpture.

What will we cover?

This flexible course is designed for those who have an interest both in art and in practical skills with the idea of combining the two. You will have the chance to work from a life model (unclothed) and learn how to make armatures and model in either clay or another material of your choice. Almost all aspects of Sculpture can be confronted and all materials used. The tutor will be on hand to help you realise your idea, sketch or image into 3D reality; you will receive one to one support as well as be involved with group discussions on work achieved. The overall aim is to build learners’ confidence and extend the learners’ perception of 3D and how to make concrete your ideas.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

The course aims to extend the more experienced learners’ skills and to guide them towards a more personal approach to sculpture making. A practical mind set and an enthusiasm for creating, experimenting and persevering are useful ingredients for those joining the class.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Clothes for messy work, examples of any previous work and a sketch pad & pencil. Some materials are provided and directions on where to buy other materials. Cost of some materials are included, others will need to be purchased including clay, plaster, resin, kiln firing costs etc. These will be discussed with Tutor during the first session. Though some materials are covered in the course fee, learners making more, or larger, items may be required to pay an additional fee.

It is essential that you wear closed toe shoes (not sandals or flip flops) and bring an apron or wear old clothes.

What can I do when I finish the course?

Learners may wish to attend further sculpture courses with the possibility of exhibiting work; there is the opportunity to join art groups, societies or to develop further within the same class and to meet like minded people and make friends.
