Figure Sculpture: a Structured Approach (six-session workshop)

This six-session intensive workshop with internationally acclaimed sculptor Julia Levitina will focus on creating a 24” figure sculpture from life. It is an opportunity for working artists as well as for new students to immerse themselves in a traditional study of the figure from a sustained pose held by a single model for the duration of six weeks.

Emphasis will be on observation, structure, and anatomy as they relate to figure modeling from life, understanding and blocking in abstract shapes in order to ultimately create a likeness in clay. The class will offer a combination of demonstrations by Julia to illustrate her methodology, as well as individual critiques to assist students in meeting their individual goals.

Special notes:
This is an in-person class that will take place in our 2nd-floor front studio with strict social distancing protocols and a maximum of 6 students in the space. Students will be required to wear masks for the entire duration of the class. Please see our COVID-19 community safety policies.
