About This Event
The class begins with a discussion of bird anatomy, comparative anatomy, the principles of aerodynamics, the importance of drawing and assembling shapes, and how to achieve the illusion of movement in sculptures of birds in flight. Sandy will help students determine the difference between a sculpture that is technically adequate & one that has spirit & life. All aspects of modeling in oil-based clay will be explored and beginning students are welcome. Students will work from computer imagery, photography, drawings, field guides, & a printed workbook. Sandy has instructed bird sculpture for over 35 years and is recognized as one of America’s leading wildlife artists.
