Sculpt a live model out of clay at this fun clay hand building class. This figure sculpting class is a must do in Sydney for anyone interested in recreating the human figure in their art.

The class is designed for both beginners and more experienced students, as you will learn about materials, images, discuss sculpting and undertake warm-up exercises with clay, all under the guidance of an experienced instructor. During the class you be will sculpting from a live model.

The class will begin with an introduction to figure sculpting and you will have a chance to study the body’s three-dimensional form. Using various clay modelling techniques, you will revolve around the model sculpting from each new view. As you work your instructor will take you through the fundamental sculptural principles of proportion, volume, and movement, as well as composition angles, structural integrity, contour, gesture, flow, and weight.

By the end of the class, you will be able to confidently model clay from life utilising additive and reductive techniques, as well as critique figure sculptures with consideration to what you have learned.
