In Term 1 you will learn to sculpt the head, from simplified forms to realistic versions. Each week, you'll delve deeper into sculpting techniques, from basic face shapes to adding intricate details and finishing your sculpture. While some understanding of anatomy is helpful, it's not essential. The focus is on gesture and storytelling.
By the end of the class, you'll be able to create a proportionally correct and natural-looking head, neck, and shoulders. You'll also produce simplified head samples and a detailed sculpture.
Tools and Materials:
Otaki Pottery Club will provide essential tools and materials, including a banding wheel, rolling pin, clay knife, and more.
No prior experience is necessary, but a fundamental understanding of handling and joining clay will be helpful.
