Re: HELP SAVE SCULPTURE AT THE ONTARIO COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN!
By coincidence I was looking at the course outline for a sculpture program at the longest existing Vancouver BC art school and it was incredibly vague (didnt even cover figure mold making) when compared with a counterpart in Toronto.
I used to always get asked where I learned to work with oil based clay and molds(the school of DIY).
The idea of figure mold making in BC tends to be earthen clay prototypes only and plaster molds. Not much in the way of formal training at any school. Too bad about Ontario.
It seems like a different world compared to the West Coast when it comes to traditional sculpting technique.
