A practical and systematic study of the generation of volume, from drawing, thorugh linear and planar construction (wood, glue gun), into (clay) modelling and (plaster) casting and carving. We will work on the realization of such concepts as solid and void (space); mass and gravity; axis (direction) and movement; compression and expansion; working in clay and plaster, with the complementary study of examples from art and nature. Materials will be provided. Students must equip themselves with basic hand tools (list available at registration)
