Sculpting the Human Figure

Our course, as well as inviting an abundance of industry professionals to come and talk to us this term, has organised a small sculpting course for Thursday and Friday afternoons. I have just joined in on the advanced sculpting class provided by Val Adamson, of The Sculpture Studio. This week we sculpted from a live female model in clay at half scale. It was nice to relax and spend a few afternoons away from my current project; we used the clay very loosely and fast paced to focus mainly on the form of the figure, we were instructed to not become too bogged down with any detail. The session will continue next week, the arms on the sculpture will be ignored until later.
