  • Overview

    The workshop combines an intensive workshop outside Rome with one meeting at AUR after the workshop. It is a sculpture course using clay, which is one of the oldest materials humans were using for creating pots and sculpture. The students will develop basic sculpture techniques and will get an introduction to the history of sculpture in general, specifically in relation to the material. Basic sculptural forms will be discussed as well as the development of abstract sculpture. Students will work on figurative themes, e.g. portraits, or figures.
