Drawing & Sculptural Construction [EDG6763G]: Overview
The aim of this workshop is to explore a range of approaches and methods of construction in relation to the human head using sheet material to produce one or more free standing sculptures.
Not only will it be informative on how to approach working three dimensionally but in doing so it will enhance observational drawing skills.
What will we cover?
The workshop will cover the manipulation of sheet material through the use of examples and demonstrations covering cutting, bending, slotting and fixing.
Drawing approaches using measuring and line will be used as a means of information gathering in order to establish three-dimensional possibilities for sculptural constructions.
Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?
The workshop is for all abilities; beginners and improvers, but if learners have not drawn or worked three dimensionally before then there is no need to worry as full support is given throughout the day.
