Sculpting the Head: The Russian Method

This course will introduce students to the Russian Academic method of conceptualizing and sculpting the human head, which relies heavily on construction, composition, and the anatomical underpinnings of idealized classicist form from antiquity. Students will be guided to see the head through strong clear demarcation of planes that integrate the proportion, likeness, and features of the model.

This will provide conviction to students’ decisions as they are pushed past simple silhouettes to think three dimensionally and feel how the various anatomical planes flow together and bind a complex set of distinct anatomical structures into the totality that is sculpture.  This approach is part of a living tradition that has passed down through an unbroken chain of generations since the Russian Academy’s inception over 250 years ago.

Students will be sculpting from a live model all 3 days.
