Monday, April 7 – Saturday, April 12, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.   
6-Day Workshop
Location: Lincoln City Cultural Center

Learn human anatomy through building an ecorche (anatomical figure). Working in oil-based clay on an armature, students will construct the bones and attach the muscles and ligaments to the bones. Sculptors as well as two-dimensional artists, personal trainers, massage therapists and anyone else wanting to gain a greater understanding of human anatomy will benefit from this workshop. This three-dimensional approach to the figure is the most successful way to learn anatomy; students will learn by seeing, hearing, and doing. The ecorche will continue to be a resource for you for years to come.

The ecorché that you make in this class can be used to become a sculpture cast in bronze.
