The student is encouraged to progress in learning to 'see' whilst developing the necessary skills to bring form to the idea. The art & the craft are learned hand-in-hand & are inseparable in practise. Through this process the student learns about 'Truth to Material' - how an idea can be transformed into a particular medium & vice versa, largely determining the sculptural 'idiom' within the broader language.
The focus of the classes is learning about form, both figurative & abstract, through making studies & the development of ideas.
Technical methods covered are:
clay modelling & use of tools
plaster waste mould making
plaster & cement casting
repairs & refinements
colouring & finishing
direct plaster modelling
Some relevant Art History is also learned osmotically through discussion of examples during classes.
The learning is facilitated at each step in each process through discussion, demonstration, & handouts.
