Auguste Rodin is considered one of the greatest sculptors of all time. The energy of his figures’ poses is matched by the dynamism in the modeling of his sculptures. Artist Christopher Slatoff leads a sculpting workshop investigating Rodin’s use of light, shadow, proportion and dramatic modeling to express his ideas. Using oil-based clay, participants create sculptures of their hands.
