This class is devoted to modelling with earth. Students will copy a model of my collection of sculptures. According to their taste and ability students will choose an animal, a bird or a female figure. They will learn from my demonstrations and I will discuss with each person the difficulties he experiences in every step until the end. You will be able to make 2 sculptures but, as time is too short to have an adequate drying we will not be able to undertake any baking. The most important step when making a sculpture is the draft and the most difficult task is to find the movement. If we catch the movement then everything will go easyly until the end. This class is open to beginners and advanced students.
The sculpture has become the language in which I express my feelings. It is thru sculpture that I try every day to celebrate Nature as my guide and my passion along with its fullness of beauty, inspiration and splendor.
Jean Lemonnier treats his subjects in a style both spontaneous and respectful of their physical singularities. Although animals are his favorite subjects he sculpts also the female figure in such a dazzling beauty that we would like to see more of such sculptures. In capturing the grace of an attitude, the power of a glance, he manages to convey the all the power of mystery. In 1990 he settled in Brittany where he currently lives and works. The patronage of Yves Rocher allowed him to undertake large monumental works in bronze and gave way to other public orders. As he was appointed an Official Painter of the French Navy he traveled to Patagonia, Bhutan, Kamchatka and the Austral Land gathering inspiration for new sculptures. He is a member of the major national exhibitions like the Salon des Artistes Francais (Medal of Honor, Silver Medal and guest of honor), the Salon d'Automne, the Salon of the French Navy and national and international animal sculpture exhibitions.
