Figurative Sculpture

Central to all figurative courses are the concepts of Dynamic Energy Curves (DEC) and Rapid Sketch Technique (RST). DEC is a proven and recognised method developed by Andrew Sinclair ARBS, and is unique to The Sculpture School. The method enables sculptors to truly reflect the anatomy of the human form every time.

Experienced sculptors find DEC and RST takes their work to the next level and frequently say they wish they had learnt the technique much earlier in their career.

If you are a beginner, DEC and RST will be your foundation to creating sculptures true to the human form. More to the point you will be well on your way to achieving this goal by the end of your course.

There is little doubt that DEC and RST and their associated methods are a major reason why over 80% of experienced and beginning sculptors return to The Sculpture School for more learning; feedback from our students shows that they also enjoy and value the learning experience.

The course is a four day workshop where you will learn about DEC, RST, the design and form of the human body and the associated techniques and skills of clay application. During the whole of the workshop you will receive individual coaching geared to your experience and individual requirements.
