Sculptures of Paris- Rodin Museum

Sculptures of Paris- Rodin Museum

The Rodin Museum has been reviatlized and reopened this November 2015.

Located in Rodin's previous studio and home, which has been maintained as a self-financed museum. On the grounds, there are numerous bronze sculptures, including the Thinker, Gates of Hell, Burghers of Calais, and many more lesser known works.

Wed night Sculpting Sessions

First month of the new class has been dynamic- there are a range of experience and projects happening, and as a student you get to soak up some tips about more than just your project this way.

Projects from January have included maquettes for larger future work, life cast of a their hand as a reference as well as some exercises I made to improve representational understanding and skills.
Check them out below :)

Larger than Life Feature- EYE

Using the skull as reference, we made a large eye socket, sculpted the ball of the eye, and then added the final flesh. (maybe about a foot wide)

Here is my example I sculpted along with them:

Here are some students, working away!

Planes of the Head

A great project to increase your understanding of the structure of the head- useful for sculpting and drawing. Starting with the most basic geometric simplification, and breaking that down to add features.

 Here is my example of the first step:

 The features added, with some of the reference handouts up:
