Portffolio: artist-led masterclass for 14-18 yr olds

Sculpture – modelling and casting with Brigitte Jurack
8 April 2017, 11:00am

11.00am - 5.00pm

The workshop will provide an introduction to modeling and casting. Focusing on the human figure, students will use drawings and photographs as a starting point for exploring a variety of modeling materials and how they affect the surface of your shape. The day will be fast paced, moving from intensive observation to the translation of flat images into three dimensional forms and learning the basics of mould-making and casting.
Students should wear old clothes or overalls, with long hair tied back.
It's also recommended to bring some hand cream.

£12.50 per workshop or £50 for five workshops.

All materials are provided and are included in the cost.

What is Portffolio?

MOSTYN’S Portffolio programme is part of Criw Celf, an Arts Council Wales funded initiative for young people with a passion for the visual arts. Aimed at students in Conwy aged between 14 and 18, the programme sets out to nurture and support more able and talented students.

Experienced artists from a range of disciplines will share their work and help you develop your skills in exploring materials and techniques you may not have used before. There will be opportunities for you to discuss your work and develop your personal portfolio.
