Learn hands on to plan 3-D ideas, examine the visual language of line, contrast, texture and composition, build artist and foundry friendly armatures, and techniques for working with oil based clay to achieve desired results. Spend time at a local foundry observing mold making, pouring bronze, and the application of patinas. Those who complete a clay model during the workshop are encouraged to have their pieces cast in bronze locally. Participants will have the opportunity to draw on the instructor's twenty five years of experience as a professional sculptor and teacher.
"From Intent to Form" is being offered in collaboration with the Joseph School of the Arts, www.josephschoolofthearts.com, located in Joseph, Oregon. Maximum class size is four students and workspace will be provided in the instructor's studio. Participants will be supplied with clay and materials to build armatures and sculptures under 15 inches. A photo of recommended sculpture tools will be available along with further details which are yet to be determined.
