This class will cover hand-building techniques for creating figurative sculptural work with an emphasis on personal expression. We will examine the challenges of creating mystery and power in artworks that spring from life experiences. Technical and aesthetic concerns will be addressed, as well as assistance translating complex ideas to the medium. In addition to technical demonstrations, basic anatomy, and an opportunity to work with a figure model, the class will incorporate image presentation and discussion on major figurative artists in the field.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
