The modelling

Détail du cours

Modeling, a traditional and contemporary practice of clay that is evolving. It is first of all a classical approach approach with the live model and at the end of the workshop a time of more personal creation with the with the support of images and objects. This training course makes it possible to approach the human anatomy by a work of reflection, study of construction of volumes and realization of sketches. To look at the human body in all its complexity, try to translate the fruit of this observation simply by a set of drawings and sketches. This first step will then allow to approach the sketch in clay, a natural continuation after the drawing, the modeling allows to treat the model in space, volume and matter. Starting with quick sketches in order to put in place a a lively and rhythmic overview, and gradually develop an intention in the modelling. To progress by a personalized accompaniment, at the rhythm of each one.

Finally, the workshop concludes with a work from images or objects to extract an interpretation that a personal point of view. A reflection can start with drawing or small sketches in clay which can be inspired by the very nature of the object or the photo to evolve towards a diverted or denatured vision of the object.
