About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Emerson

Nick studied engineering before graduating from the Emerson School of Sculpture.  He worked with John Wilkes designing Flowform water features for 21 year and also taught wood and stone carving at Emerson and modelling at Tobias School of Art. Nick is passionate about sculpture and helping students find their creative voice with and through their material. In this course he invites us to explore the relationship between surface and form which he sees as fundamental first step in the art of sculpture.

Learning aims

Understand the fundamental principles of relief making, including mass, space, force and movement.

Strengths to develop

We will need to learn controlled techniques of exerting just the correct amount of pressure to manipulate the clay. Through this, you will develop your fine motor skills considerably.
