It is a journey through the human form withparticular attention directed to mass, volume, structure and principles of anatomy. Artists will explore design and anatomy secrets of the old masters and will be guided to develop a personal project, in which their individual needs will be considered. An introduction to sculpting tools, will be offered along with demonstrations and discussion. This course
is structured for beginners as well as artists with previous experience, and aims to provide a base in the necessary techniques of sculpture.
