Sculpture Workshops by Javier Murcia

Intensive classes are a good way to have a peek of the artist´s methodology and philosophy of work. The end goal is to provide strong foundations to lead students towards getting the confidence they need to make their work.

Javier Murcia is an artist with more than 20 years of experience in the art and the entertainment industry. Trained as a figurative sculptor with a particular interest in anatomy, he has developed a style that plays with the form and the drama in the intention of capturing the soul on his work.

“An accomplished figurative and portrait sculptor, Javier pushes human anatomy to its ‘outer’ limits while elevating the grace, strength and potential energy of the human form. His work dances on a knife edge, as noble and reverential as it is fervent and impassioned. It is a deft-defying balancing act that Javier has mastered in his own extraordinary way.”

How to get a likeness from observation, is not only a matter of measuring the face and having the right proportions but to bring the energy out of the subject and print it in the work.

This course is for people who are looking for a better understanding of the anatomy of the face. We review expressions, volume, and muscles with a demo so you can develop your work following the steps. This course is practical but it dives quite deep sometimes in theory and practice.

One of the things I like to recommend in my classes is that you need to have fun! otherwise, you lose interest and become too technical.

 Join me in these sessions where I will make a sculpture from life model in the same format I use for the classes

BACK IN MID- JANUARY 

 

LIVE MODEL SCULPTING

SATURDAYS

from 2.00 pm to 5.00pm

 Lower Hutt, Wellington

 

A model will pose in 1,2 or 3 different poses in 30 min sessions for about 2 hours. The model will be sitting on a rotating base, this way we turn him/her and look at them in 360º view with senital lighting. This will allow us to have a better understanding of the three dimensions of the anatomy from our workstation.

10 people Max. You need to bring your own materials and tools. Stands for sculpting will be provided.
