Redefining the Art of Life

Redefining the Art of Life

Learn how to create a detailed one third life-size (24” approximate) dynamic action figure. This course is designed to give students an opportunity to work on one pose from a live model. Students will work from a figure armature and form it for correct placement, creative composition. Students will also be using caliper reduction, various pointing and measurement techniques. Final detailing will be discussed and demonstrated. Professional oil based clay will be the medium for this class. Additional professional sculpting techniques will be demonstrated to add detailing for hair, clothing, mounting, etc. One-on-one student/teacher instruction is emphasized and encouraged. Each student will be working from a live model but also invited to bring photos of subjects they would like to sculpt outside of the class.
Our classes are fast paced, questions encouraged and we discuss many subjects not only related to the physical sculpture being created, but also molding, casting, finishing and foundry techniques to provide you a basis to take your sculptures to a higher level of professionalism. www.roywbutler.com
