Sculpture from a live model

There are 5 other workshops going on here at the Scottsdale Artists School in addition to the one I'm in this week.

 One is a sculpture class. I've never done any sculpture so don't know anything about it, but one thing I was surprised at is that the students were sculpting from a live model- a horse! Tuesday morning a trailer pulled up and off walked a horse for the class. I asked one of the students about it and she says they can refer to them model for proportions. so even though the horse doesn't strike a pose like a human model does in sketch class, it is there to glance at for proportions, muscle structure and other information to lend authenticity and accuracy to the artwork.

It was fun to watch the artists at work.
Here's one of the students in action.
