The workshop was hosted by The Southern Atelier and was taught by renowned visiting instructor Robert Liberace. During the workshop, each participant spent mornings on the step-by-step creation of an ecorche (anatomical) sculpture in order to learn about the interconnected forms and structure of the human body. Afternoons were spent drawing these forms from models and learning to arrange them into compelling compositions.
The current revival of traditional town planning has strong parallels to the revival of figurative art. Principles of composition and design frequently overlap in the arts, and study of a less familiar art form can often provide fresh insight and inspiration.
