Life Sculpture Workshop: The Dynamic Pose

Sign up

Instructor Konrad Dunton

In this 7 week sculpting session we will be focusing on a dynamically posed figure in clay using an internal armature. Beginning and continuing sculptors are invited to sculpt from a live model independently or with instructional assistance. There will be one long pose for the entire duration of this workshop.  For those interested, we will start with a hands-on-demonstration in building an internal armature, which will not require the traditional cutting out of armature, hollowing and reassembling of parts. This armature type is well suited for dynamic poses and figures 20 inches and higher. In addition, instructional help will be offered in anatomy and in sculpting styles and approaches. We will conclude the class by preparing the sculpture for firing it in the kiln.

The piece will then have to dry and go through bisque firing before it is ready for pickup. This process takes approximately 2 weeks."Visit the instructor's websire for additional details:
