Fine Art Studio Sculpting
Advantage Publishers Group, Jan 1, 2005 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 40 pages
Rivals Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci once fought over a block of damaged marble; Michelangelo won the battle, and he transformed the contested piece of marble into the masterpiece David. Now young artists can join these masters in molding their way to the third dimension of the art world -- sculpting. This handsome book-and-kit combo contains everything needed to get started: four blocks of modeling clay, six plastic cogs, nine armature wires, two shaping tools, a modeling poster, and a 40-page book of instructions. The set features step-by-step projects that give budding sculptors a chance to practice using the tools and techniques of the great sculptors. A survey of the art of sculpture throughout civilization, from ancient Greek and Roman times to Native American masters to Brancusi and the modern abstractionists, offers context and inspiration.
