Clay figure into abstraction: sculpture taster - Morley College, London

About the Course

This two day short course will introduce and practice abstracting the figure in sculpture. Clay modelling from a life model in the 1st week to create a small clay sculpture which will then be re-worked into an abstract sculpture in the second week, looking at examples of contemporary sculptors such as Picasso, Glynn Williams and Katherine Gili.

All Students must follow physical distancing guidance as explained by their tutors. There will be a course maximum of 8 in the sculpture studio which has been adapted to facilitate a safe learning environment. Students are asked to bring their own old shirt, apron or coveralls to wear in the studio, to remove and wash between sessions. A small personal hand towel is also required. Before and after using any shared equipment, students will be asked to wash their hands. We strongly advise that you also bring and wear a face protector.
