Clay sculpture: figurative sculpture from life

The Mansion, Totnes

Who is this course for?

This course is for learners interested in the human form only, as you will be working from a life model every week. The model is there for you to interpret in your own style. Short and long poses will be set with some warm up quick poses to start with.

Course content

This is a leisure course so no qualification. You will be learning the skills of observation and modelling in clay. You will be working with clay using your hands and modelling tools. A life model will be your inspiration for your sculpture.

Support and feedback

The tutor will teach on a 1:1 style giving regular feedback during the sessions. Written assessment will be shared with the learners as feedback.

Additional costs and requirements

A sketch book with charcoal will be helpful to capture the models pose for you to look back on and a camera to record your progress.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
