About this event

Sculpting Species: Working with the Animal Form

with Natalie Ryan

Sunday 11 September, 10.30am - 3pm

$120 including materials and light lunch

Natalie Ryan will guide participants working with air-dry clay to create a sculpture of an animal. Learn a number of sculpting techniques using ceramic tools and hand building methods. Participants will select an animal from the photographic reference imagery and anatomical diagrams provided to create a finished artwork to take home. Please note: the work created will need time to dry offsite, with the option to paint afterward.

About the Artist

Natalie Ryan's practice explores themes that surround the aesthetic representation of the cadaver and natural sciences throughout history and their inclusion in contemporary art. Drawing from existing methodologies used for displaying these elements, she is interested in the process of imaging the natural world and the exchange between science and art that has allowed this. Ryan has worked with anatomical collections held in the Veterinary Department at the University of Melbourne and lectured in Anatomical Drawing working with human cadavers at Monash University. Ryan holds a PhD at Monash University Imaging the Dead: The Cadaver in Western Culture and Contemporary Art.
