What is Relief Sculpture? Relief sculpture is midway between drawing and sculpture.
In this workshop, Patricia Barker shows you how to work on a flat background of clay, building up projecting forms or incising into the background. It can be low relief, like a coin, or high relief as in Ghisha Koenig’s sculptures of factory workers, where the figures are almost fully in the round.
The advantage of relief sculpture is that complex and fragile forms don’t need the support of an armature, you can also portray movement. You can create perspective, light and shade and texture, your work can be representational or abstract. Please bring your own drawings/images that you feel could be translated into 3 dimensions.
Workshops explained: The Sequential Development of Creativity
Art development applies the same school philosophy of committing to developing the individual’s abilities through specialist tutoring and applying a process of learning using the building blocks of art making. Adult students bring with them a developed personality, personal knowledge, experience and defined opinions that demands individual attention. The sequential development of creativity empowers the student to progress at their own pace through the art leaning journey and progress is often mapped through a sketch book-based annotation approach.
