Living Arts Centre

Explore the fundamentals of portraiture or figure drawing and then apply these techniques to create a fantastic 3D wire sculpture. Choose from:

Option A: Proportions of the Face

In this workshop, students will learn about the mathematical proportions of the face and then investigate ways they can manipulate those proportions to create a unique abstract sculpture.

Option B: The Human Figure

Students will explore basic concepts of figure drawing and create a 3-dimensional miniature wire sculpture of the human body in motion. This workshop is an excellent complement to a unit on the systems of the body!

Option C: World Structures

Connect to your science curriculum with the exploration of mass, centre of gravity, and weight distribution in architectural structures. Students will build their own 3D wire structures inspired by famous structures from around the world like the Eiffel tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the CN Tower!
