Lomogram_2013-06-12_11-22-05-PM

June 9th – 13th 2014
August 4th – 8th 2014

This is an intensive in-depth study of the main techniques of sculpture with clay: 30 hours of tuition in 5 days, from Monday to Friday.

The workshop is meant to those artists whose aim is to discover the fundamentals of the sculpture and improve their manual skills. Through a hands-on approach students will easily learn how to “see” and “build” their material piece of work.

Bas-relief

Bas-relief is a sculpture technique that is mainly used for decoration and that allows to create a projecting image with a shallow overall depth. Students will learn how to design and make up the background, how to create a three-dimensional composition also by using perspective and deepness effects.

Sculpture in the round

Sculpture in the round is a technique which allows to accomplish a fully three-dimensional figure completely detached from its background. The peculiarity of these kind of works is that they can be observed from any point of view. During the seminar our Art teacher will show the students how to build the skeleton of the composition and afterwards how to create the entire sculpture by adding clay to the supporting structure.

The Coil technique

The coil (or “colombino”) technique was already used in the ancient times to make vases, cups and other round clay containers. Students will learn to build ceramic forms by rolling out coils of clay and joining them together, either manually or with a specific tool. Students will then be able to create artistic objects: not only vases, but also busts, half-length portraits and other kinds of sculptures.

Classes will be held by Ms Ombretta Piazzini.
