Overview: Level 1, Level 2, & Level 3 Workshop Combo (September)
Combine sculpting workshops and save! Commit to a concentrated and dedicated effort to master anatomy. Not only is it one of the hardest things for artists to master, its arguably the most important foundation. Combine whatever courses best address your interests, current weaknesses and creative aspirations - and make the most out of a concentrated and immediately applicable learning experience.
Description: Andrew Cawrse is teaching a set of workshops designed in sequence to take your anatomical knowledge to the next level.
The Level 1 workshop is designed to be beneficial to both beginner and intermediate levels. By learning through the tactile process of traditional sculpting, participants will understand proportions and simple mass construction of forms, then progressively refine those forms into more complicated anatomy. Working directly on our proprietary, medically accurate, skeleton armatures, you first learn the correct proportions, shapes of the skeleton and how to recreate them accurately. You are taught exact placement of muscles and most importantly understanding their surface form, function and characteristics 3-dimensionally.
The Level 2 workshop is designed to recreate idealistic proportions of the human figure, weight distribution, blocking and refining skeletal & body masses from life & instruction, anatomy comparison between male & female. You will learn joint types, as well as exact origin / insertion, function and form, of the muscular system. You will create your own half skeletal half muscle male ecorche sculpture in pose. Advanced students will receive an introduction to the superficial vascular system. This is an amazing opportunity to really take your knowledge of anatomy to the next level. *Some prior Anatomy Experience or self-study is recommended as a pre-requisite.
The Level 3 workshop is designed for anyone interested in seriously pursing figurative art, traditionally or digitally, 2 or 3 dimensionally. "An incredible and life-changing week" *Prior Level 1, 2, or equivalent Anatomy Experience, is a recommended pre-requisite for the Human Anatomy Level 3 Class.
