Human Anatomy: Constructing a Head Écorché

Through construction of a head ecorche we explore the anatomy and structure of the head, neck and facial features. Working with human skulls as a model, we sculpt a life-size skull in plasteline on a wire armature. We then create the mouth, eye, nose and ear.  Finally facial muscles and some neck and throat muscles are added. The instructor places most of the emphasis on the shape of the bones and the features of the mouth, eye, nose and ear.

The Power of the Underpainting

Through a series of projects, students will become familiar with creating an underpainting using a wipe out technique. They will begin to learn how setting up the painting in this way allows the artist to freely adjust the drawing and composition, whilst rapidly establishing tonality, form and temperature in the initial stages. The students will then begin to introduce color through a range of glazes and direct painting techniques, witnessing how the underpainting assists the process and energizes the final painting. In addition to the practical component, we will also discuss the importance of the underpainting in art history and how this can be useful in contemporary representational work.
