A sculpture workshop is available during the summer at Ott's studio for sculptors of any skill level. Enjoy the great views, shade of the cottonwood trees, meandering creek and an occasional herd of cows while creating a piece of art. This comprehensive workshop explores animal sculpture in depth.
Topics including inspiration, idea development, research, armature, anatomy, composition and design are thoroughly covered. All students design a maquette (miniature rough draft sculpture) and then complete a larger clay sculpture.
A few opening are still available for Ott's workshop, August 3 & 4
Workshops are offered to students from kindergarten through high school. Ott has taught dozens of his workshops to hundreds of students at different schools in southwest Montana. The fundamentals of sculpture as well interesting items including skulls, horns and antlers are displayed and discussed in class. Students are provided clay to create a sculpture of their own.
Sculpture workshops at different locations (preference of the organization) are also available. These workshops can be tailored to the individual organization/group. The same information is covered and students complete a final sculpture.
Seminars & PowerPoint Presentations
Seminars and PowerPoint presentations are available to organizations and communities. A wide range of topics are covered from concept through completion of a piece of sculpture. Slides of models, the creation process and casting are included in the presentations.
