This 12 week course will be an in-depth study of structural anatomy as applied through sculpting the figure. In the 5 weeks figure sculpting portion of the course we will be focusing on the large masses of the the body, and how they move in concert together to form a clear gesture. This fosters an understanding of structural anatomy relationships in a three dimensional way, while encouraging students to reference relationships between fixed anatomical points. Students will learn how to judge likeness with volume and mass, in addition to learning to read depth, while translating what they observe accurately to their sculpture. We will make direct correlations from what we observe in life to the structures in the muscular and skeletal systems that will be revealed as we strip down the figure sculpture into an ecorche. In the 7 week flayed portion of the course, we will look into the anatomical make up of the figure in a reverse manner to traditional ecorche. Instead of starting with the building of the skeletal system and the sculpting of each muscle from their origin to their insertion point, from the inside out, we will dissect the sculpted figure using the bony anatomical landmarks as the starting point and carve the muscular system and the joints from outward in. We will acknowledge the human figure as an architectural structure in respect to its scientific laws of mechanics. Students will understand the body's form and function, while grasping the true form of the masses contouring of the body, with some regard given to certain superficial veins and the layer of fatty tissues underneath the skin. The class will work with ecorche casts, books, photos and 3d models to achieve an understanding of descriptive anatomy, and develop a systematic approach to the structural aspects of flaying the figurative sculpture. Materials: Students need to bring with them the Sculpture House double wire end modeling tool #204 and a "knife like" wooden modeling tool as well as a
