Brian Booth Craig will be co-teaching a Figure Sculpture workshop with David Simon from June 13-24, 2016 in Rome, Italy. In this workshop, students will work directly from a model to create a figure in plastiline over an armature. Students will learn to use proportional systems to organize the linear landmarks of the figure. Structural and anatomical information will be discussed and employed to help to better understand the figure. The proper use of modeling tools will be covered. This workshop will also include visits to museums, churches and historical sites where we will examine and discuss the ways in which great sculptors of the past dealt with various challenges that the figure presents.
