About This Activity

Enjoy an introduction to figurative sculpture through the écorché, a traditional style of anatomical sculpture. The écorché begins as an armature, and participants sculpt the skeleton before applying muscle layers from deep muscle to outer muscle. One half of the sculpture is left as skeletal, to demonstrate the relationship between skeleton and muscle in the human figure. As an introduction, this workshop will cover basics, such as different tools and how to use them, how to build armatures and sculpture stands, anatomy and anatomical concerns for the sculptor, and working start to finish by roughing out and refining. Some level of anatomical understanding or artistic experience with the human figure is helpful but not obligatory. All that is required is a desire to learn more about the structure of the human body through your hands. Students can bring their own clay or purchase it from The Art Center at 60 cents per pound. A bisque firing is not included in this workshop. Instructor email: myousa@gmail.com The above thoughts will be common threads that weave their way throughout the weekend. Included in the workshop will be an informal image lecture (dialogue), demonstration, group and individual instruction, and critique. Steve will also be open to allowing flexibility to facilitate the needs of the participants and will be in contact with participants who pre-register with thoughts on how to prepare for the experience.
