Over a ten-week block of tutored sessions, you will methodically examine the structure of the head and neck through a series of group demonstrations and individual practice coupled with instructor critique. You will learn how to capture likeness working in the round using classical concepts and traditional methods. You will gain a deeper understanding of human anatomy, geometric planes, and natural proportions of the form. Working in the round helps you develop your eye as you broaden your methods for analysing both the subject and your own technique.

Key concepts will include

  • Artistic anatomy
  • Geometric planes
  • Proportion
  • Major and minor forms

This workshop is open to all skill levels and no prior sculpting experience is required. The concepts covered in this course are applicable to figurative art at any level regardless of medium, and thus beneficial to beginners and professionals alike. Tools and armatures will be provided for the duration of the course. There will also be a limited supply of tool sets available for purchase for those interested. The work you produce is yours to take home.

Bio

Piper Von Paris is a classically trained figurative sculptor, specializing in portraiture and figurative art.

She holds a deep appreciation for anatomy, geometry, and rhythm of form, which she believes are paramount to accurately capturing a subject in the round.

Piper’s favourite area of study is portraiture because of the unique challenges it presents - accurately depicting structure and form while still preserving the humanity and personality of her subjects.
