Kogan -Composition - Sculpture supplies list

Composition is often mistaken for design. Designing is thoughtfully organizing placement- it requires an experienced, educated, intelligent eye, taste and certain elegance. Composing is none of the above. It’s transcending the raw experience and observation, living it all again in a new, unknown form. Composing is a much more carnal, visceral, unruly process, whereas design is much more planned, logical, and ruled. Making the block of clay exude emotions is composing – that is the art of sculpting. This workshop will focus on observing the model and sculpting what students have not seen before. Simon will teach students how to breathe emotions into the clay and how to truly experience sculpting.
