What you'll learn in this sculpture class:

Écorché sculpture workshop is strong method to master and to commit the complex forms of the human figure to memory. This course will focus on better understanding the skull and muscles of the face, as well as it's various facial features. Students will use oil-based clay on an armature to build a life size anatomical sculpture of the human head. They will first sculpt a life-size skull from an actual  plaster cast.  They will then proceed to sculpt the unique muscles of the face onto the skull. Students will learn through a series of master lectures on the anatomy of the head, anatomy textbooks, and photo as needed.


Required materials for the class are as follows:

1.) One basic head armature

2.) Basic set of sculpture tools if you have them. If you do not have tools we can supply these for you. 

3.) 5 blocks of Sargent or Van Aken brand sulfur-free oil clay in the 4.5 or 5 pound blocks (required). The clay must be of a soft or medium consistency.
