This class will examine modern and historical representations of the figure in art. Students will spend the first four weeks of the class sculpting small-scale representations of the figure from reference images. In the second half of the class, students will learn various handbuilding techniques and surface treatments to create a complementary 3D canvas for figurative illustration. This class would be appropriate for beginners to clay. Included: a bag of studio clay, 20 pounds of free firing, and access to the studio during the Open Studio hours.
