Class Description;

As a reference, we are using a simplified figure to explain to the students how to break down the body into simple geometrical parts. This makes it easy to understand the volume of these different parts and the core structure of the figure; so that it holds its weight and plays with the balance against gravity. We learn proportions and anatomy without going too deep, just enough to read through the surface of the skin and get an understanding of the human figure

About the tutor:

Javier Murcia is a professional sculptor born in Spain. Trained in figurative sculpture, he studied fine arts in Spain and has international experience of 20 years working in film and art industries. He arrived in New Zealand in 2013 and after five years at Weta Workshop he decided to concentrate on his personal artistic career. His most recent work, Eidos Collection, is a step out of the conventional work he normally does. It was exhibited in Vienna and New York at the beginning of 2020. Now, Javier is focussed on his studies of the human figure in order to upgrade skills for new work.
