The New York Studio School offers three distinct intensive sculpture courses this summer. Join a two or three week course and explore perceptual sculpture based on the figure; relief sculpture with storytelling; and large-scale sculpture for public places.
Bruce Gagnier will lead students through a two-week Sculpture Marathon responding to the human figure (June 6–17). Daily clay sketches will be created with spontaneity and vision and discussed in relation to classical examples and contemporary figuration.
In Storytelling & Relief Sculpture with Leonid Lerman and Jock Ireland, students will draw from perception and imagination to work in clay, plaster, and other materials (June 20–July 1). The first week will concentrate on constructing low relief sculpture using reductive methods and the second week will incorporate high relief sculpture through additive methods. Students are encouraged to arrive with personal story interests that will be created physically through sculpture.
In Sculpture for Public Places, Jilaine Jones and Lee Tribe will guide artists through the conception of sculpture for the outdoor urban context (July 5–22). Topographical studies will be the foundation for a series of models to introduce form and structure into a given place to intensify and reconfigure its spatial dynamics. Participants will select models to construct at near or full scale. Visiting sculptors and architects will offer lectures on their experiences working in the public domain.
