35 Sculpture and the life model
Lucianne Lassalle www.luciannelassalle.com
September 3rd – 9th 2017

Hand building. For all

In this five-day course we will be exploring sculpture inspired by the human form. The workshop will be focused, creative and intensive.  
Firstly we will informally discuss and examine how artists over the years have represented the human form.
Then looking at the life model in different poses we will do a series of quick sketches on paper and short studies in clay. We will be noticing the movement or flow of the form, the volumes, the negative spaces, the balance and the direction of the movement. 
I will be giving demonstrations and one to one guidance throughout the five days. We will work from the model for two days and after that we’ll continue working from our clay sketches, using them as a starting point for our main individual sculptures. We will use the local terradcotta clay and make without the use of armature.
In this course the aim is for everyone to make a clay sculpture inspired by the human form. It may be a fairly representational expressive sculpture or a totally abstract work, but each piece will be a completely unique sculpture and a creative expression of each unique student.
The work will be fired after the end of the workshop, when completely dry. Arrangements for shipping the work home can be made.

The total cost of the course is 1080 Euro;
Single price supplement: 150 Euros.
The workshop fee includes the following
Tuition (6 – 8 hours per day, studio open 12 hours)
All materials and firings
Model for 2 days
Lodging in double room; single room on request, add 150 €
Welcome dinner and welcome breakfast
A freshly prepared Tuscan Lunch with wine on all working days

La Meridiana

Lucianne Lassalle was born in Paris in 1960. She has travelled widely, working and exhibiting in Galleries and Sculpture events in Canada, USA, Europe, London, and the south East and West of England. Lucianne works with a variety of clays but mostly in stoneware. Her work is either fired or cast into bronze, resin or cement. What has engaged Lucianne mostly in her work is the human form with all its energy and tensions. She sees the human body as an interface between feelings, emotions, thoughts and the external manifestation of these in the world.
