Figurative Sculpture

Figurative Sculpture

Introduction

Central to all our figurative sculpture courses are the concepts of Dynamic Energy Curves (DEC) ™ and the Rapid Sketch Technique (RST) ™ which are proven, and recognised methods developed by Andrew Sinclair MRBS, and are unique to The Sculpture School. The Sinclair Method ™ enables sculptors to accurately create the anatomy of the human form every time.  

Experienced sculptors find DEC™ and RST ™ takes their work to the next level and frequently say they wish they had learnt these techniques much earlier in their careers.

If you are a beginner, DEC ™ and RST ™ will be your foundation for creating sculptures true to the human form. More to the point you will be well on your way to achieving this goal by the end of your course.

Materials included in the course fee: bespoke steel back-iron, base-board, armature wire, clay for sculpting, course reference manual, digital reference charts.

Figurative Sculpture Workshop Level 1

Through our unique methodology, you will discover the power of Design Criteria TM (Dynamic and Energy Curves ™) and proportional anatomy within the human figure: armature construction; the application of clay using the Rapid Sketch Technique™; the importance of measurement. Included in the workshop is a unique anatomy demonstration with a life-model where Andrew Sinclair MRBS illustrates how his methods work in reality. This course provides you with a superb foundation in sculpture skills and techniques, giving you the ability to create a beautifully proportioned human figure, to scale, which you will take home to continue working on. Whether you are new to sculpting or have some experience, our innovative teaching methods mean this is an inspiring workshop, suitable for all. 

Figurative Sculpture Workshop Level 2

A masterclass for the experienced sculptor, you will have already taken our Level 1 Figurative Sculpture Workshop. This course builds on the skills and techniques from our Level 1 course, especially with the emphasis on how measurements change once the body is in motion. Using our unique methods, you will learn how to breathe life and energy into a figure ‘in motion’.  From the initial design and construction of your armature, with a greater understanding of anatomy, Dynamic and Energy Curves ™, Design Criteria™, applying the clay using the Rapid Sketch Technique ™, working with accurate measurements, you will create a realistic human figure to scale, full of vitality and movement, taking your skills to a more professional level.
