Working from Life: Portrait & Full Figure with Wendy Black
Tuesdays: 16 May – 27 June (7 weeks), 10am – 4pm, Fees: $695.30 (Early Bird*), $770.30 (General)

The life study was the foundation of Tom Bass’ teaching. He maintained that it was an invaluable class and was the best way to learn about sculptural form and structure of the human body. This course will be an intensive life study based on close observation of form, proportion and relevant anatomy. Students will develop a greater understanding of and skills in drawing, armature making,  modelling clay and sculptural language. Working from a seated model, students will have the opportunity to choose whether to do the full figure or a portrait. Click here to read more & to book. *Early Bird discount finishes 2 May.
