Human Figure Sculpture

This course is an introduction to figurative sculpture. When working with live models, nudes in contrapposto, we learn to interpret nature with traditional techniques. We start by learning how to set up the model and pay attention to subtle changes in the pose. Contrapposto poses are best suited to get an understanding of anatomy and variety between relaxed and tense muscles.

After the introduction to the academic techniques of the modeling of the human figure, we will begin to sculpt a figure to 1/2 life size by using an additive method, where we will build the shapes slowly through the three-dimensional drawing. We will observe the model from a distance and we will focus beforehand on the general impression and the accuracy of the proportions and the gesture, before moving towards modeling forms and other details. The first step will be to capture the relationship between the box (pelvis) and the egg (the rib cage).


  • Understand the complexities of form in space.
  • Develop an optimal capacity of visual precision, through the use of observation and structural knowledge.
  • Learn to be self-critical with one’s own work.
