Our morning was spent with the museum's conservator on Tuesday. This behind the scenes look at art preservation and conservation was a rare treat for any art lover. In the afternoon we went back to the studios to begin work on a plaster ecorche carving. We were each given a plaster cast of a face and asked to carve away the excess material to show the muscular structure of the face. I chose to split my face in two - depicting the skeletal structure on the left and the muscular structure on the right. This traditional academic assignment allows students to gain a deeper understanding of how the face is constructed and why light hits the surfaces int he way it does. This activity will be completed on Wednesday morning.
