Registration Closes on Oct 28th!
Five 2-hour blocks of live instruction using virtual meeting platform. In between each session, each participant will have “homework” to complete to progress their sculpting piece to the next level in preparation for the next session.
Each 2-hour session will take place over Zoom. They will be a live session as well as recorded so you can go back and review any session as you desire. You will be able to ask questions real time. We encourage all participants to have video capabilities available so they can show their work to Rod and the other participants. You will be able to ask questions real-time during each workshop.
After the end of the workshop, each participant will have approx. 1 hour to work with Rod on a one-to-one basis.
Session 1: Building the Armature – Rod will walk us through a simple yet effective process of building the armature for your horse sculpture. An exploration of correct anatomy and proportion will be shared. This base process will help ensure correct dimensions throughout your sculpting process without complicated mathematical equations. This session also includes supplies, supply sources and how to prepare your clay.
Session 2: Developing the Silhouette and Plinth – Because sculpture is viewed from all 360 degrees, establishing a strong silhouette will engage the viewer from a distance. It is the beginning of the story you are telling and encourages further exploration. A strong silhouette can evoke emotion and engagement.
Session 3: Mapping Points – Using the horse’s head length, Rod will guide us in how to identify anatomical points to help maintain proper proportions.
Session 4: Mapping In – Rod will expand the anatomy to identifying muscle groups and move into highlights and shadows as we continue the modeling process. Understanding of light reflection and creation of form will be discussed.
Session 5: Developing Details – Now we start to create our own voice through the sculpting process. Exploration of texture, tools and details. What is your signature style?
