Learn to draw or sculpt horses

 Keith Gunderson will teach a new class on working with the equine form at the Woodstock School of Art in March. The course will be based on the classic ecorche or muscle figure. Students will be provided with armatures designed specifically for building the complete equine skeleton and its muscles in non-hardening clay. The individual muscles will be explained, and their function and shape demonstrated. Students provide the non-sulfurated clay suggested in the materials list as well as sculpting tools and drawing materials. Upon completion of the ecorche, the student can purchase the armature or elect to remove the clay. The class is intended for artists interested in mastering skills and open to non-artists as well; the course can be an informative and educational experience for those who own or care for horses. Gunderson plans to bring a horse to campus as part of the overall course curriculum.
