The Secret Figure: A Sculpture Workshop for All Artists

The Secret Figure: A Sculpture Workshop for All Artists

Designed for all levels of ability, this five day course is for painters and sculptors wishing to expand their knowledge of the human figure. Rick Casali’s innovative teaching style embraces the French method of “secret figure” – a knowledge/concept approach to understanding the body. This workshop will consist of daily sculpture demos by Casali, covering: proportion, anatomy and geometric construction. The head, torso, and appendages will be sculpted methodically, highlighting the essential characteristics that make us human. This proven method relies on memorization and understanding, thus students are advised to keep a sketch book during the week. Each student will sculpt their own 24″ ‘universal planes figure’ to be used as a studio reference.

 

  • Recommended for portrait painters, sculptors, illustrators, and computer animators.
