We're trying something new this week: learning a craft from a professional! Effects artist Frank Ippolito spends the day with us to teach us some basic sculpting lessons. The first lesson sounds simple, but makes us look at common shapes in a new light.
Learn to make a sculpture modeled in traditional plasticine (oil clay): the course guides you step by step in the creation of structures, volumes and surface of the piece, to the final details. Have you ever had the curiosity to make a sculpture? Are you a student of fine arts and want a clear course that explains simply modeling techniques? Do you want to perfect your sculptural technique and learn more about materials? In a few hours this video guides you from the realization of a light structure to the creation of volumes, until the final finishes. Each method and each material is clearly explained so that you can use it in the best way.
The Beginner's School is a free online art school on youtube for beginners of all ages.
