Fall art classes: Alberto Giacometti

Here is the finished cat sculpture inspired by Alberto Giacometti artwork . It looks like a skinny cat because I read that the artist represented the shadow cast by the animal rather than the animal itself. The faux-finish technique for “bronze” worked well. Students will have the choice of making a cat or a dog.

J'ai terminé la sculpture du chat inspiré par l’œuvre d’Alberto Giacometti. La technique du faux-fini pour le bronze a donné un très bon résultat. Les élèves auront le choix de faire un chat ou un chien.
