5 Day Summer Life Study with Wendy Black
Fee: $640.30, Early Bird Fee: $575.30
The life study was the foundation of Tom Bass’ teaching. He believed it was an invaluable class as it was the best way to learn about form. Utilising time with the life model and studying the body offers endless variations of form and helps build a mental library on which to draw and be inspired.
This is an opportunity to observe and model the human figure in clay over 5 days. Under the guidance of Wendy Black, participants will begin by drawing and finding the pose, the rest of the time will be spent closely observing the shapes and forms that constitute the body.
Casting will not be part of this workshop, if you wish to cast at a later stage, which can be done during an open term workshop. Alternatively, you can dismantle and use your clay again for another sculpture, or you can take your study home with you.
Fees include: GST, 5 days access to a life model and materials. Students must bring their own board to work on (details given on enrolment).
