Eugene Daub: December 3 - 6, 2018
These Workshops always fill up because there are a limited number of students to keep the quality of instruction very high and personal. Don't miss your spot, register know!
PORTRAIT, FIGURE, and PATINA
The Portrait in Relief Sculpture and Patina with Eugene Daub, FNSS, $550 plus materials, with Nights of a Thousand Candles tickets. The portrait in relief has many advantages to the portrait in the round. Its greatest advantage is that it allows the artist to choose the most interesting or favorable point of view. Students will work through the process of transferring a photograph or a drawing onto the clay, and building up to high or low relief through the use of superpositions (overlapping forms, as in drawing). Eugene Daub will demonstrate casting the relief in plaster and will discuss the advantages of working in the negative, which sounds a lot harder than it really is and can be an invaluable tool to create fullness and detail. Most students produce two reliefs during the week. What you will learn during this 4-day workshop will set you on a path for many personal and professional portraits in the future. An additional feature will be a demonstration of Eugene Daub's personal approach to doing a paint patina on selected samples. This technique can be done on dry plaster or on fired terra-cotta reliefs. Students may bring to class a finished plaster or fired terra-cotta relief to patinate if they wish since the pieces that are created in the workshop will not be dry enough for this process.
Although each sculpture workshop begins and ends at the instructor's discretion, the schedule is generally 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on the first day, and 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on subsequent days, which provides six hours of instruction per day. One hour is allowed for lunch. In order to keep to the schedule, students are encouraged to bring their own bag lunches or to use Brookgreen food service facilities. Refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, water-cooler, and vending machines are located at the Campbell Center.
