In ancient Greek history, there was a deep bond between humans and animals. They became symbols, children's toys and played central roles in fairy tales. In mythology, human souls were trapped inside animals under the curse of the gods. Many ancient Greek artists used copper, marble, clay and gold to illustrate these minimal and, at the same time, perfect animal forms. As one of the admirers of this type of art, I would like to invite you on a journey to this magical world through the art of clay sculpture. The workshop will start with a brief reference to the animals and their symbolism in ancient Greece. Then, I will show you my way to create animal forms. You can eventually make your own animal creature and take it back home. The clay animal needs to dry and be fired in the kiln. You can receive it afterwards from the lab or post it to your home address (with an additional cost). A certificate of participation will be offered to each participant by the end of the workshop. The 1-hour workshop takes place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 11.00 o'clock and 16.30 in my lab and shop at 28 Parthenonos street, under the sacred rock of the Acropolis.
I am an experienced sculptor specialized to clay animal art based on Ancient Greek History following the lines of Cycladic Art. My sculptures can be found in Hellenic Ceramic Sculpture Exhibition .Also, the cult of miniatures made me create illustrations of animals in the same style in very, very small dimensions.
The whole course will take place in a workshop gallery at 28 Parthenonos street near Parthenon temple. The gallery has many animal sculptures so that to have a better perspective of what you will create.
