Clay Sculpture Workshop: Make A Torso in Melbourne, 23rd July at 2.30pm
Genuine Fine Art Experience in Smith+Gertrude ( without life model)
Experience a relaxing fine art experience with Imakesculptures at the Smith+Gertrude Contemporary Gallery, and learn how to sculpt a human torso from scratch.
Date: 23rd July; Time 2:30 pm; Duration 3hrs; Address 73 Smith Street, Fitzroy 3065
You will be able to look at little torso sculptures as your models, as well as the slide show.
Your teacher Irina is a professional sculptor whose sculptures will be there for reference.
Everyone will receive wooden armature fixed on a wooden stand which will help to build the sculpture and provide the basic proportions.
This workshop is limited to 12 people.
Irina will go around from person to person to gently nudge your sculpture in the right direction. If you want to receive more in-depth instructions, you are more than welcome to ask.
One of the major differences between applied (such as pottery making) and fine arts is that in the fine arts there are no strict rules that could make our project unsuccessful or "failed" to serve its function.
This means, that with the right guidance, everyone will be able to create a little sculpture that will undoubtedly have its beauty and artistic features.
What will I get?
- Air-drying clay suitable for a small figurine, from half to one kilogram available per person (WED Clay).
- Various metal and wooden tools for sculpting.
- Wooden sculpture stand to help you have the base for the sculpture.
- Metal coating for patina
- Disposable aprons
