Learn to create your own showpiece with clay sculpting! Not only is it a great form of self-expression and creativity, but sculpting will also help you develop your observational and analytical skills.
This course will introduce and develop skills related to sculpture and ceramic techniques: building shapes with slabs, coils or direct modeling techniques with or without an armature. The course outline is academic and creative at the same time. The subjects are inspired by nature or interpretations of it. Art history will be another source to consider.
Beginners will be introduced to a new and playful technique of tridimensional art. Those with prior experience with sculpting can develop their own techniques and enhance their knowledge. While finalizing the works, there will be a variety of choices to enhance the shape, color, outline or shades of the pieces using stains, underglaze, glaze or smoke firing techniques. Molding in plaster is another choice.
