Dionisio Cimarelli

Sculpting the Bust in Clay

May 5th - May 11th, 2024

Join us for an all-inclusive sculpture workshop with Dionisio Cimarelli, uncovering the secrets to creating stunning clay busts. There will be a focus on the methods and tools needed to make a bust directly from a live model in order to study anatomy, structure, proportion, skull, and facial features, with careful observation of different expressions and exploring a variety of possible artistic interpretations.
It will provide an understanding of techniques from Italian and European Old Masters, all while being surrounded by the impossible beauty of Marsala's stunning seascape and ancient greek and roman ruins and sculptures.

At the end of each day, you will return to a gorgeous boutique hotel nestled among the olive groves. Enjoy the astonishing sunsets. Sit back and relax by the pool as the chef prepares delicious meals for the group. Recharge after a full day of sculpting and get to know your classmates and instructor in a laid-back, enjoyable atmosphere, making new art friends for life!

Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced sculptor, you'll have the chance to develop your skills in a supportive and welcoming environment. Dionisio will provide daily critiques and demos. The teaching will accommodate all levels, and beginners will soon find themselves on their way to mastering the principles of clay sculpting, while more experienced sculptors will take their work to the next level.

We can't wait to see you soon!
