Clay B Summer Session 5

Clay Summer Session 5
July 19 – August 4, 2020
Arturo Córdova & Cristina Córdova
Sculpture in Motion

Students in this workshop will create an articulated ceramic sculpture and use it to develop a stop-motion animation sequence. We’ll present methods for building and finishing ceramic components as well as strategies for unifying the parts with metal elements that will facilitate posing. We’ll cover basic lighting and animation techniques focusing on the fundamentals of movement to create stop-motion progressions inside personalized sets using Dragonframe software. All levels.
