Clay Scupture: "Figurative Humanism"
Crucially important for all artists, sculpture sharpens the visual skills essential to seeing and developing the three-dimensional aspects of human form. Through the sense of touch, students will understand masses in relation to each other and surrounding space, as well as the definition and direction of planes, leading to an understanding of gesture, weight, balance, rhythm, and the essential spirit of the pose. The ultimate goal is to develop a vocabulary and ability to connect form and feeling – ‘what Yost refers to as figurative humanism.’ Work will be from the figure model. * Includes a materials fee payable to WSS.
