Term 4 – 2022: Portrait and Hand Study with Jenny Pollak

This course is an opportunity to model both the head and the hand in a single study. The portrait bust is a common sculptural form used by artists over the centuries. Not quite as common are head studies that incorporate a close connection to the hands. This class will offer the opportunity to develop a portrait in which the hands are an integral part of the sculpture and essential in conveying the feeling of the work (it would be hard to imagine Rodin’s Thinker without the great hand on which the head rests).

Jenny will guide both the beginner and the more experienced artist through the process involved in working with clay from the life model. Students will be encouraged to push their work beyond a merely faithful representation of the body and develop a more personal language and means of expression.

During this 9 week course students will have time to bring their work to a point where it is ready to be fired, exploiting the facility and beauty of clay as a material that can be transformed from the raw and impermanent to a final and enduring sculptural piece.
