Drawing and Casting in Bronze Course, Priego de Córdoba 2015

During this August, a special edition of its summer course has been held in Priego de Córdoba. This time we have collaborated in carrying out an enlargement  of one of D. Venancio Blanco's works: 'Tribute to Music' that will embellish a public area of the town. This work is part of the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the Drawing and Bronze Casting Course.

I take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues, teachers and D. Venancio Blanco for the fantastic experience.

From left to right and top to bottom:
Julio Herrero, Jeni Vahos, M.Mar Ruiz, Esperanza Durán, José A. Aguilar (T), Marta Campos (T), Paco Tamajón, Fran A.H. Alvarado, Mar Muñiz, Andrés Naranjo, Lolita Paz, Antonio Viso, Aurora García, Gil Gijón, Jaime López, Luis M. Garcia Cruz (T), José, Miguel Forcada (Culture town councillor), Aida Santos (model), D. Venancio Blanco, ?? and Miguel Montanari.

The work in bronze. It still requires some hours of polising and welding. 

All the process can be followed cliking on this link: 

D. Venancio Blanco uses the opportunity to continue teaching. On this occasion he is highlighting the artistic values of casting trees. Only the artist who knows the casting process or casts his/her own pieces has the sensitivity to understand the aforementioned aesthetic values of these elements so necessary for casting.

Delivery of certificates of attendance. My little daughter invited herself to receive the diploma on my behalf. She took centre stage :)

With my dear friends  Lolita Paz and Andrés Naranjo. This year they justly got the awards of the course. Congratulations!!
