Baroque Putto Masterclass
Challenge your limits and develop your skills. This exercise will forever change the way you look at sculptures.
This online class will mainly consist of high-quality instructional videos that demonstrate the whole carving process of the little head in detail. You will be able to watch Athar carve the whole exercise in real time from close-up and from an ideal vantage point. During the process, Athar will provide detailed explanations of his actions and guide you through each step. The course also includes downloadable sample sheets that complement the instructional videos.
Following the step by step process, the course will enable you to carve the Putto in your own workspace and according to your own tempo. You can share the process with Athar through pictures and videos and he will be available through online video calls to answer your questions and help you out with additional comments and demos where needed.
It’s like you’re in class, except that you will be able to engage according to your agenda without missing out on anything!
What you will learn
The last plaster cast to the far right (final stage) is included in the course.
For an additional 99 euro (shipping included) you can order the full set of all the six stages of the work.
Though possible for the unexperienced but enthusiastic beginner, this course is designed for the intermediate student who wants to take sculpture to the next level. But it will require some serious engagement and endurance.
He has a PhD in the Arts and is an Associate Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp. He has been a visiting professor at Florence’s Art Academy, Florence’s Opificio delle Pietre Dure, Madrid’s University, the University of Ghent, Zurich’s ETH, and Havana’s Institute of Art.
I highly recommend just jumping in and taking the course. You will be in good hands!
