**Sculpture Sketch Course with Mario Castillo (Tuesdays from 6pm to 8pm)**


In this course, the student will work on a sculptural composition exercise. Throughout the classes, you will have the opportunity to create a unique and meaningful sculptural piece by learning to conceptualize and compose through preliminary sketches.


Our approach is divided into two key areas:


Exploration of Sculptural Language: We will guide you in the search for original and meaningful ideas in sculpture, recognizing that a work of art is never truly finished but rather an ongoing process of dialogue and collective learning.


Technical Development and Precise Observation: You will learn to observe the natural world in greater detail and reinforce your anatomical and structural knowledge. You will master fundamental strategies to handle transitions and capture precise information at each stage of the process.


Course Outline:

Introduction and Initial Steps: General course presentation and creation of preliminary drawings from a live model to prepare for the conceptual and compositional study of the sculpture.


Construction and Development: You will progress by building a basic armature that reflects your sketches. Your sculpture will have a size between 30 to 40 centimeters in its longest dimension.


Investigative Process: Over eight days, you will develop your sculpture. You will shape the general form in clay over two days, then work on intermediate volumes and minor transitions over the next two days. Two days will be allocated for adjusting major lines and structures, and the final two days will focus on refining details and necessary decisions.


Course Objectives:
  • Create an original sculpture using the resources and support provided by the course.
  • Translate abstract ideas into drawings and then transform them into three-dimensional forms using appropriate sculpting techniques.
  • Identify structural, proportional, and mass-related issues at different stages and work on detailed transitions without losing sight of the overall form.
  • Lead a coherent and honest conceptual and compositional proposal from the inception of ideas to materialization, understanding that the process is as valuable as the final result.

  • At the end of the term, during the last week, the student will have the opportunity to learn how to make the mould of the last sculpture he/she did during the course.


    We will provide a list of recommended tools and materials, though you are also welcome to use your own tools if you have them.



    **Sculpture Studies Course with Angelica Arvylàs (Thursdays from 5:30pm to 7:30pm)**


    In this course, the student is introduced to the exploration of the human figure in order to be able to understand it and represent it accurately.


    You will delve into the body's internal structure and distinct anatomical elements while working from live models. You'll grasp the nuances of balance and pose dynamics. With keen observation and thoughtful planning, you'll sculpt with precision from every angle, understanding how each element interacts to form spatial relationships and harmonious volumes.


    For this exercise, we will work with white clay on a metal stand, standing at approximately 30 cm in height. All levels are welcome and there will be introductory lectures at the beginning of the class for everybody. Each student will also receive a personal critique every day. For those who are more advanced, we'll explore topics like composition, foreshortening in intricate poses, and perfecting the final stages of modeling.


    At the end of the term, during the last week, the student will have the opportunity to learn how to make the mould of the last sculpture he/she did during the course.
