Design/drawing for wood carving is not the same as design/drawing for fine art or even sculpture. Fine art is considered 2D design and sculpture/wood carving is considered 3D. Wood carving is also a type of sculpture. But when compared, 2D modeling is an additive process and wood carving is a deductive process. The art of deduction is a little more complicated to draw. If, while carving, a 1/16” is removed from the wrong place, the effect on the final carving can be “gone with the wind.” Designing for wood carving causes the designer to think differently. Plus, it is important to keep in mind the shape of the tool and the effect of the cut. Learning how to draw what you intend to carve is a practice that is rarely, if ever taught. In this one day class Alexander will help students understand the process of drawing deductively, which will make carving easier to understand.
