15 – 21 Julio 2018 – IVYnode in collaboration with the artist Mer Jiménez Marrodán and the patronage of the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) of Barcelona is welcome to propose the 2nd Workshop of the Sculpture which will take place in Turégano, in the province of Segovia (Spain).
The workshop is aimed for both beginners and experts and the participants will have the opportunity to acquire knowledges about the techniques of sculpture of human anatomy.
Mer Jiménez Marrodán, sculptress with a specialization in Stone and Bronze bursts into the national artistic market with a work of a certain claiming character, truly original. A work that gives us back the great taste of the Great Art. Her work demonstrates a character that is reflected in the power of the forms, in the fullness of the features, in the strength of the volumes and in the hierarchization of values in specific parts of the body. Her knowledge of sculptural anatomy is evident in the treatment of forms and in every detail.
She currently teaches sculpture at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) in Barcelona, where she has some of her works in the permanent collection.

We will dedicate 5 days to create a sculpture. We will focus on the human anatomy, reinforcing the ability to observe lines and shapes. Mer Jimenez will guide the participants individually in relation to their technical capacity and experience. It is not necessary to have prior knowledge.
In the morning we will focus on the creation of the sculture and in the afternoon there will be cultural visit to the province of Segovia.
