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.
The Beginner's School is a free online art school on youtube for beginners of all ages.
Learn how to make realistic sculpture of animals and people using modeling clay. A professional sculptor of over 30 years, Chuck Oldham takes you step by step through the process with several easy-to-follow projects. Visit the Learn Sculpture website to see some of his own work.
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.
