if you wanna be a sculptor...

Posted to Utterances




kiss your pretty hands goodbye...wire, rock, hammers, clay, heavy metals...all those things are really hard on the digits, not to mention the hands. Look at most sculptors hands and you will see what I mean. Get some bag balm. ;)

Some of the best art is outsider art...classes may be great but if you find and wind your own way, the influences are your own and unique. Take a few basics then let her rip.

Use your money for materials, find someone close to you that can show you the ropes, one on one, mano y mano. Start with something simple to see if it will be a passion for you or just a passing fancy. Clay would be a good medium or wire.

Check out some of WIREMAN's sculptures...awesome! I wish I could link his site...(somebody help?)

Good luck...I hope you find that creative spark that cures all inner and outter...
