ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

I have always represented the human condition and its relationship with life throughout my artistic practice. Currently my creative applications have shifted direction to explicitly exploring the human figure from life through traditional means. Through this I will juxtapose classical figurative techniques with contemporary ideas and my personal exploration of life. Producing work that not only challenges both genres but the individual viewer.

Sculpture Program
Skull & Portrait Sculpting from Casts

$590

SEP 11 to SEP 15 2023 (9:30am to 3pm)

Programs — ATELIER MELBOURNE ART ACADEMY

Over a 5 day intensive workshop students will learn the fundamentals of sculpting the portrait. For the first 3 - 4 sessions students will start with sculpting from a cast of a human skull. This is an important study in understanding the basic structure of the portrait. This exercise also introduces the students to a sculptural method of working from a profile to find and place depth as well as finding and placing points of reference accurately. From this, using the skull exercise as a base, students will then start sculpting from a life model. For the rest of the workshop students will work towards completing their portrait placing emphasis on finding accuracy and translate the character of the cast.

Throughout the workshop demonstrations of the various steps of sculpting the skull and portrait including basic anatomical landmarks and how to break down and place the individual features will be given. Students will also receive regular individualised critiques to help guide them through the process of sculpting a portrait in clay.

On the last day students can attempt the hollowing out their clay portrait as an exercise for firing in the Kiln. Extra time may need to be given to this exercise. Students can then take their sculpture home and fire in a local kiln at their own cost and convenience (details will be provided of local kilns available). Please note that when preparing for and firing in a kiln can have unpredictable outcomes.
