Course of sculptural figure from a natural model

Course objectives

This course will focus on building a figure in three dimensions, using refractory earth. To the learning process during the construction we will add the exercise of observation, ability that will allow us to be careful with the proportions and to reach the maximum degree of similarity between the model and the sculpture.

Once the modeling is finished we will carry out the casting of the sculpture, to help its drying and to foresee a later firing of the figure in the ceramic kiln.

Completed the course:

  • You will know how to choose the right materials and tools for modeling.
  • You will be able to observe a natural model and reproduce it in great detail.
  • You will know the proportions of the human body, being able to build proportionate figures, correct both formally and gesturally.
  • You will obtain realistic finishes.
  • You will master the process of casting a sculpture for firing in any ceramic kiln.
