Summer courses

4 intensive summer courses in sculpture (on live models) in 2022
At the workshops of La ligne d’horizon

Course 3

August 22 to 26, teacher: Alexis Remacle, also a teacher at ARBA

Each Course will take place from 9.30-12.30 and from 13.30-16.30.

The intensive courses are intended for students who wish to learn the art of modelling in sculpture based on a live model.

The student learns to reproduce, to analyse forms, solids and voids. He learns to look and in fine to reproduce what he sees.

In the mornings, on Monday and Tuesday, we will do some quick poses. We will study the construction of a sculpture by quickly analysing the model in order to learn how to build. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings will be dedicated to the study of the face, we will learn how to build a head by sketching it, analysing the forms, the lines, the volumes, the planes and we will go as far as to finalise a portrait in 3 mornings.

All afternoons will be dedicated to the elaboration of a long pose. We will make a sculpture from start to finish, reproducing a model in its entirety.

These courses are intensive but take place in a good atmosphere.

Price per course: 370 euros + 90 euros for the model. Maximum 9 students per class. Reservation required.
Total price of the course: 460 euros.
A deposit of 160 euros is required to reserve a place.

Classical sculpture

Classical sculpture, modeling: study of models or portrait. All will be studied on pictures or based on sculptures made out of plaster.

Casting stage

Casting stage: study and implementation of a silicone mould (a sock mould) with a view to having your own work cast at a bronze foundry (this stage does not take place at the school) or with the aim of obtaining multiple copies of an original made of a replacement material, such as artificial stone, plaster, wax, etc…
The silicone mould is a mould that can be reused.


Patina: The course focuses on the application of coloured patina on the terracotta sculptures made by the pupils during the course of the year. This subtle sleight of hand makes the sculptures look even more beautiful.
Among others, we imitate the fake bronze ‘verdigris’, red bronze or brown bronze, the ceruse style, the aged style and many, many more…
