Playing with Personal Mythology

TBS Classes2021 PersonalMythology KosibaStingle Header 1800x700

This 5-day intensive workshop begins on Monday with a slideshow exploring animal human hybrids in mythology as well as samples of instructors work for inspiration and discussion.

The rest of the workshop is dedicated to guiding participants in expanding their narrative vocabulary by combining human and animal sculptures to create their own mythologies. Proportion and anatomy will be covered as well as the power of gesture and expression in storytelling. Students will build a human torso and at least one animal form.

We will then focus the class on deconstructing and combining these figures to create their own narrative sculptures. Different building styles and techniques will be offered that participants can adapt for their own studio practice.

There will be a one-hour lunch break each day from 12 - 1pm.
