Clara Hali is a widely exhibited artist who boldly engages with the human form and surrounding rock formations of the Blue Mountains landscape. Her sculptures combine figurative and abstract elements, exploring the duality of human strength and fragility. This dynamic workshop is designed for beginning and advanced students interested in the human figure as a subject of art. Using mindfulness techniques students will learn how to represent the human form sculpturally, making numerous clay sketches directly from the life model. Short poses will focus on the development of gesture and expression, with longer poses used to study anatomy and interpretations of the human form.
Clay and modelling stands will be provided but students should bring a cardboard or polystyrene box, plastic bags, a kitchen cutting board and vegetable knife. If owned, pottery tools can also be used in the workshop. Students will receive instructions on how to prepare sculptures for firing and information on where their work can be fired.
