Sculpture with Theresa Langendorff
On a splendid spot with magnificent views on Orvieto you will focus on making a sculpture under the expert and personal guidance of Theresa Langendorff, professional artist, qualified art teacher ( Academy of arts in Amsterdam;sculpture and ceramics) and art historian (graduated from the VU University in Amsterdam).
Surrounded by the beauty of nature and richness of culture in this part of Italy, you will find relaxation, meet interesting people and get inpiration to go deeply into the world of sculpturing.
Theresa will teach you the necessary techniques to fully express yourself through the exciting medium of sculpture. Think of how to find your access in the stone, carving, ciseling and so on. You will also learn how to use the several utensils, like i.e. cisels, (sledge) hammers, mallets... Likewise you will learn which of the utensils fits best to the stone and to what you want to achieve.
But...sculpture is more than mere techniques. You will also focus on your choice of a subject, design, aesthetics of your composition, plasticity, thrill and finishing of your work.
The course is for beginners and more advanced participants. You can bring your own utensils or ask us to buy them for you.
You will preferably work in local Italian stone, provided by alsettimocielo. In case you might prefer to work in another type of stone, you will have to bring that yourself.
Somewhere in the middle of the week we'll take you on excursion. The excursion will be related to sculpturing.
Theresa is at your disposal during 6 hours per day from Monday to Saturday.
