3D Anatomy-Ecorche | Self-Study
Ongoing (Ongoing) — An ecorché/3D anatomy model is a centuries old method of learning anatomy through three dimensional means. The word ecorché is French for flayed body and refers to human or animal anatomy by which you can see the interplay between the skeleton, tendons, ligaments and the muscles on the living form. It is an essential means for every figurative artist to better interpret through knowledge of what he/she sees. Rey will guide the student through making a skeleton in Sculpey, followed by laying on the muscles that constitute artistic anatomical form. This is an intense, hands-on approach to learning the body - a necessity for any artist concerned with learning accurate anatomical representation. Visit website
