Course Description 

This unorthodox course explores the process of creating a figure in clay, from before you even start, up to the point of "when to stop". Form and structure, mass and energy, mood and movement, composition versus design, speed and pace, sculpting materials and tools. It is all covered in depth and waiting for you within this course.

Simon’s passion for art is contagious; delving into his approach and seeing his process of figure sculpting is a must for all artists regardless of your choice of medium.


MODULE 1 | preparations for the beginning

The first module is explaining how much work is to be done before you begin anything. From sketching, analyzing photographs, to the choice of the base and clay, to the actual sculpting, and finally, the decision when to stop. All those steps unfolding in front of you simplify your way to freedom when sculpting.

MODULE 2 | How to see the hidden structure in any figure

The second module is a visual guide on how to see, draw and construct your sculpture. We will employ the concept of the "box" to locate and shape the figure in space.  The hidden structure becomes obvious and will guide you to the understanding of any figure in any position.

MODULE 3 | MECHANICS OF HUMAN  ANATOMY

The third module is devoted to anatomy. We will draw and sculpt models for each body part, not as medical dissection, but as a 3-dimensional mechanical design. It will reveal why we move the way we do. The function will find its form.

MODULE 4 | HOW TO SEE WHAT MATTERS

The fourth module is a ride on all the knowledge we accumulated through the course. We will walk through the whole process of seeing the figure, analyzing, building the custom armature, sculpting, and following the bliss while doing it. You will see me doing what I preach. And after the show, I will open my treasure chest, introduce you to my tools of the trade - concepts, no secrets! 

On top of the 4 core modules with 9 hours of instructional videos, Simon adds additional monthly video content throughout the 365 days — it’s an ever-growing library of tutorials to provide you with fresh material for added inspiration and motivation. 

Whether you draw, paint or sculpt figures Simon's course will teach you techniques and skills EVERY artist needs.

Study and Mentoring Description

Simon Kogan is an exceptional sculptor and teacher and now we have the opportunity to bring his knowledge to your studio.

Physical workshops are great, but they end way too fast.

Wouldn’t it be great to have ongoing access to a renowned artist and his instruction to help you get the results you deserve? This type of attention and expertise is what advances your work forward.

We know it can be so frustrating and disheartening to work hard at perfecting your art to only be hit with more stumbling blocks. This zaps our confidence and makes us wonder if we really know what we’re doing… 

 …well, this is why we created our “365 Day Access with Mentoring”, Online courses - all with you in mind.

  6. And—most importantly—you can join Simon's "private" Facebook community. Get feedback and critiques from Simon so you can see what a renowned artist does to bring your sculpture to a more sophisticated, refined work of art. Simon gives YOU full support all-year-long. Plus see what other students are posting, so you can learn from their journeys as well! It’s an amazing community to be part of throughout the year.

    *Note~ Your participation in the private FB group is not mandatory, but we sure hope you’ll take advantage of this valuable resource.
