The Portrait from Photographs: July 2020

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th July 2020

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

When it’s not possible to work from life, portrait sculptors must translate two dimensional information into three dimensions to create a likeness of an individual. Whether it’s a character from history, a posthumous tribute, or a contemprary figure who is unavailable to sit, photographs from life, paintings or drawings can provide a viable starting point. This course aims to equip students with a thorough understanding of the challenges involved, as well as some useful techniques to simplify the task in hand.   We will be making portraits  in clay and/or wax working from students’ own material, at a scale of their choice. Comprehensive course notes will be provided in advance to assist with preparation.
