Clay Sculpture Courses

Experience making artworks in 3D in a life model class run by professional French artist Philippe Charmes. This fun and practical course is ideal to refresh and concentrate on a job of a completely different nature that will engage both your mind and your body fully. 

You will learn basic sculpture techniques and principles while exploring human anatomy, proportions and space. In this 4-week course in July we will focus on the hands, an extremely complex (did you know that there are 27 bones in each hand?!) and expressive part of the body: they reveal emotions, intentions, stories. Hands are known to artists as a challenge subject to draw. However, by working on them in 3D while closely observing a life model we can better understand the structure and volumes, which will also help us when we capture them in our drawings.
