Sculpture I: Canine and Feline Portraits
Students will explore the principles and visual elements of sculpture through creating a portrait of a dog and/or a cat. Working in plasticine or clay, we will learn about the proportions and relationships between the volumes and anatomical elements. We will work from reference images and cat and dog skulls. Students who work in plasticine will have the opportunity if they wish to follow this class up by registering for a weekend workshop to learn how to use their sculptures to create a silicone mold.
Students can work in plasticine or clay. Plasticine will not dry out, doesn't need to be fired, and can be used to make a mold. Clay tends to dry out, it will need to be fired which sometimes can lead to cracking, but it is more affordable.
- Plasticine: 20 lbs to be purchased online at Sculpture Supply Canada.
- OR clay: 1 box of either L215 of M340 from T&T Tree Pottery Supply.
- Tools: To be discussed in the first class. Please bring any you might have.
