A photo of National Sculpture Society member Rod Zullo working with Christina Aliev ’16 (La Jolla, Calif.) was published in the August issue of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine. Based in Bozeman, Mont., Zullo visited Culver Academies in April to work with the Equine Sculpture classes taught by Jack Williams.
The one-semester course allows students to sculpt a horse in oil-based clay. Culver’s horses serve as models while the students work in the Robert C. Vaughn Stables. (Above) Zullo offers advice to Aliev on proportion and anatomical structure. The students apply the clay to a wire armature, which they construct.
A condensed class is offered during Culver Summer Schools & Camps with the exception that Williams constructs the armatures so Upper Campers can start applying clay the first day.
