• Figure Sculpture in Relief

    Instructor: Homer Yost

    Tuesdays, 10am - 1pm

    $485 includes clay

     

    The term “relief” is from the Latin verb “relevo,” meaning “to raise.”  Relief sculpture gives the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane.  The practice of relief sculpture with the human figure as subject matter dates back to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks.

     

    In this class students will be sculpting in relief using clay with the figure as subject matter, following the tradition led by contemporary sculptors such as Giacomo Manzu, Francisco Zuniga and Leonard Baskin.

     

    Who is this class for: This class is for sculptors and painters alike who want to bridge the disciplines of painting and sculpting through the malleable and accessible medium of clay.  It is recommended that students have some life drawing experience before starting to sculpt, but all levels of sculptors are welcome.
