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.
