Focusing on the accurate portrayal of anatomy, posture and gesture, we will investigate the communication of complex emotion and narrative context through building a full human figure. Details of hands, feet, hair, facial expression and fabric folds will be emphasized during this two week workshop. Kevin Rohde will lead participants through the process of constructing full figures 24” tall using a unique armature process and solid building method. Once the armatures are removed, the pieces will be hollowed out and completed, covering the ceramic slip and cold finishing process.
We will also be going on two day-trips to either Florence or Rome and either Siena or Perugia, exploring those great cities’ rich sculptural heritage. For more information, contact us.
