Modeling of figurines

Description:

These training sessions will allow you creating a figurine/bust of your own design. We provide advices, knowledge and know-how to allow you concretizing your project. These sessions allow trainees to evolve independently while benefiting from regular coaching.

Planning:

Accompaniment in the conception of a bust, a figurine or an academic figure.
• Technical advice on the preparatory work and personalized coaching to help in the production of the final piece.
• Group exchange on current projects, techniques and local suppliers.
• Provision of tooling.
• Provision of an adapted space.

Note: Cost of raw material not included. Supply of raw material possible at a professional rate.
Modeling



Infrastructure:

Water – Dishes / Equipped kitchen – Toilets – Parking places with disc for max 1h along the road of the pavement & max 3h at the Sauvabelin Lake (5min on foot). Collective parking of the signal at 15min walking distance (disc & paying).

Description:

This training provides you knowledge about the tools and methods of wax modelling. We will travel through wax modeling with an imposed subject so that you can work with this material, experiment and feel the volumes, and put in relation the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired during the session. The final goal is to give you the basics to be able to progress independently.

Planning:

• Terminology and tools of the modeler.
• Manufacture of a wax model.
• Study of volumes from a 2D plan
• Methods and techniques of modeling
• Notions about modeling materials and support structures.

Description:

Facial expression is one of the most complex products of the human body to represent. It is largely thanks to it that we finalize the “message” that we wish to transmit through our work! Knowledge of the anatomical bases of facial expressions is a prerequisite. Through this training we will approach the different muscles of the face at play in various facial expressions and their impact on the modeling of the face. We will focus on the mouth, nose, eyes and ears by making a proof in wax with an imposed expression. Our goal is to develop a personal methodology to highlight the interactions between the different facial muscles and to transcribe the facial expression in a coherent way on the proof.

Note: plan for the transport of your work after the course (plaster skull on which your work will be affixed)!

Planning:

• In-depth study of the eyes – nose – ears – mouth.
• Study of the interactions between muscles in facial expressions.
• Fabrication of a wax proof on a plaster skull provided by the instructor.
• Establishment of the preparatory phases of modeling.
• Notions about the anatomy of the skull / Larynx muscles / Neck muscles.

Training methodology:

Interactive teaching: Interactive teaching allows teaching by actively involving trainees in the learning processes through regular instructor/learner and learner/learner interactions. This method focuses on the understanding and meaning of the course content as opposed to merely memorizing them by rote. Learners are constantly encouraged to be active participants.

Experiential learning: Experiential learning is a learning approach through experience, which directly places learners in situations that reflect reality. This approach is based on the learning process rather than on the results (concrete experimentation, reflective observation). The instructor adapts to the learner’s level. The learner will make the group progress by being actively involved in the training and by sharing experiences. This training approach aims to promote the development of learners’ autonomy.

Project-based training: The learner produces his own work project at his own pace, independently. The instructor is present to accompany the learner when he/she encounters difficulties and provides support, advice or suggestions for experimentation to move forward in the project. The goal is to equip the learner with methods, techniques and knowledge so that he/she can accurately analyze and evaluate the production process of his/her project and solve problems with flexibility.
