Hollow Core Construction: a Unique Figurative Sculptural Approach

July 21, 2019 – July 27, 2019

Bobby Scroggins

During this workshop students explore ceramic figurative sculpture. You will learn the basic principles of design, maquette making, armature building, figure modelling, deconstruction and reconstruction. Participants should bring sketches, drawings and/or maquettes to complete during class. The most appropriate idea for each student will be selected to safely design, construct and fire flawless pieces in a short completion time. This is an ideal approach for art teachers and figurative sculpture students who want to eliminate firing losses. Open to beginning to intermediate skill levels.

He has been chairman of Visual Arts for The Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts. Scroggins’ works have been in major exhibitions and collections throughout the U.S. and abroad.
