About this Course

Depicting the realistic human figure in clay is one of the most complex challenges facing sculptors today, and one of the most respected.

Robert Bodem makes it as simple as possible with a powerful method he developed over 20 years called Drawing in Space, recorded for the first time for this online course.

In this course, you will learn a systematic and easy to follow approach to realistically depict the human figure in clay, while expressing your artistic intentions.

An impressive number of Robert’s former students who learned this method are now world-renowned artists – and now it’s your turn.
