Course description

Sculpture – Figure Sculpting course in Sydney.

This figure sculpting course is a life-modeling class designed for both beginning and advanced students interested in the human figure as a subject of art.

Sculpting directly in clay and working from a model, students study the body’s three-dimensional form with emphasis placed on the fundamental sculptural principles of proportion, volume and movement.

Students will learn about materials, images, discuss sculpting and undertake warm-up exercises with clay. Using various clay modelling techniques, students revolve around the model, sculpting from each new view. We will look at composition angles and volumes, structural integrity, contour, gesture, flow and weight.


By the end of this course you will have learned how to:

  • model clay from life utilising additive and reductive techniques
  • demonstrate several textural techniques used in surface treatment
  • use clay modelling tools
  • critique figure sculptures with consideration to composition, proportion, volume, weight, rhythm and texture
