Figure Gestures

Figure Gestures

In this terracotta sculpture course students will do a deep dive into gesture – how to find emotion and meaning behind figurative poses. The slightest turn of a head, placement of a hand or downward glance can change the connotation of how a story is told. Students will explore historic meanings of gesture in art, ways of directing focus and challenging understanding. Students will be using a variety of hand-building techniques, using paper, and foam armatures.

The artist as story-teller through the figure.

NOTE: There will not be a firing for this workshop.
