Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

In this three-day workshop, students will work from a live model to create figure and portrait sculptures, using water-based clay. Using demonstrations and personalized assistance, George emphasizes proportion, gesture and anatomy as a basis for artistically expressive sculpture.

Instructor: George Paxton
Cost: SVAC Member: $295; Non-Member: $330 ($25 additional materials fee)
Ages 14 (with parent/guardian permission) – Adult

Artist Statement:
I work from nature with a live model to create classically-inspired, representational, figurative sculpture in terra cotta and cast in bronze. I believe that the creative process must be grounded in the basics. A good understanding of proportion, gesture, and anatomy is essential. But, as a perfect depiction of a figure can best be captured by a photograph, an accurate representation of nature serves only as a starting place from which artistic expression and creativity spring. With an understanding of proportion and anatomy, an artist can select out certain features and forms, accentuating them while minimizing others, and create sculpture that is not only true to nature, but which also expresses the artist’s views and captures the essence, mood and feeling of the subject.

Southern Vermont Arts Center "FInding the Magic: Painting in the Splendor of Vermont" Workshop with Cynthia Rosen

Southern Vermont Arts Center "FInding the Magic: Painting in the Splendor of Vermont" Workshop with Cynthia Rosen

Age 17+
Cynthia Rosen welcomes students to this exploration into the limitless color and light of August. This workshop takes place partly in the studio and partly in plein air. Medium is each student’s choice. Teaching is individualized to meet various skills, interests, and medium, though some drawing experience is recommended. Open to ages 17 and up.

The recipient of multiple awards, professional painter Cynthia Rosen has approached art-making from many angles over the course of her career. Her current focus is on the out-of-doors (plein air). She says, “Finding my voice, discovering a way to connect with and interpret the nature of our ever-changing world, lies at the center of my interest and quest, through both improvisation and creating order. I have found my fascination with color and the movement of it a constant, as evidenced in all genres: landscape work, still lifes, and portraits.”

To register by phone or email, please contact Erin Kaufman at ekaufman@svac.org or 802-367-1306. Cost: SVAC Member: $220; Non-Member: $245
