This course introduces students to a concise method for creating an accurate figure sculpture while working from a live model in a sustained pose for a full ten weeks. Gesture, proportion, clay application, and design will be emphasized. Anatomy will also be a prime focus of the course, leaving students with a clear and simple map of the skeletal landmarks of the body which can be applied to figure drawing and painting as well sculpture. Guidance on capturing the individual characteristics and ‘likeness’ of the model will be another feature of the course.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
