Cast Sculpture

From the Renaissance to the end of the 19th century, the canons of classical antiquity provoked admiration and became the model to be followed for all the new artists. The study of cast copies of classic sculptures became the epitome of ‘good taste’ and an indispensable step to be a complete artist.

At the Barcelona Academy of Art, students use casts to exercise the hand and the eye, to study proportions and contours. The casts are grouped by levels, and the learning is sequenced so that the student acquires more and more complex knowledge as he / she overcomes the exercises.


The Still-Life Sculpture course includes the following exercises:

Cast Sculpture + Still-Life Moulds

These exercises are completed in the presented order.
