Join figurative artist, Yvette Ten-Bohmer, in this 4 week course working with the human form to create a detailed clay sculpture using an armature.

Course outline:
Week 1 - Life drawing with a professional unclothed model. The drawing focus will be on capturing life forces and strong compositional studies. Drawings from this class will form the basis of your final sculpture.
Week 2 - You will learn how to construct your base and armature with wire.
Week 3 and 4 - You will create your form using a variety of sculpting techniques. Each week notes will be sent out to engage in class discussions about artists and creators who use the human figure in their art.

Come along, bring a friend and meet new people in this unique opportunity to work with the human form in clay igniting your imagination and creativity with this hands-on experience.
