Figure Sculpture

Sculpt the figure from the live model under the guidance of internationally acclaimed sculptor Rick Casali.  Artists will create a 24in standing nude in oil based plastilina on a wire skeleton armature. Each day will feature numerous demos by Casali explaining the essential knowledge for making life-like figures with sound anatomy. Topics covered: “action” of pose, human proportions, geometric planes, specific gross anatomy, and the organic rhythms that tie it all together.  Students will work on the same pose for the entire 4 days. 

Workshop will include a private sculpture tour with PAAM CEO Christine McCarthy.

Recommended for portrait painters, sculptors, wood carvers, students of drawing, and computer animators.  All skill levels welcome.
