Sculpture from Life - Mondays 7-9pm at KIAC
On Mondays at KIAC you can make a figure or portrait sculpture in clay, working from a life model, with sculptor Andrew Spencer. All the materials and equipment that you need to create a small figure or head are provided. Andrew will help with basic techniques for working with clay and advice on making your sculpture suitable for firing in a kiln.
The model will hold the same pose over several sessions so that more experienced artists can produce a larger, sustained piece of work over a number of weeks.
Using a stand with wheels, you will be able to move around the model and work from all angles - ‘sculpting in the round‘ - which is vital for working effectively in three dimensions. To help make sure everyone can move freely, spaces at each session are limited to 8, so please check availability if you are coming for the first time. After that, you can book for subsequent weeks of the same pose if you want to spend more time completing your piece.
The price of £10 per session, includes hire of the life model, use of all equipment and provision of a quantity of clay to get you started. Also includes tea/coffee and biscuits during the break. Extra bags of clay are available to purchase separately for those wanting to work on larger pieces.
