Maquette is the French word for “scale model.” In traditional animation, sculptors create character maquettes as 3D reference guides to aid the artists in drawing characters from all angles.
This class will show you how to sculpt your own character design, or favorite character from film or literature.
Students will design their character, then create a wire armature and sculpt their maquette in polymer clay.
Maquette sculpting is a great skill to add to a professional portfolio, as well as a fun hobby to enjoy for life.
