    If 'Classic' derives from the Greek word for 'Best', then what comes after the time of Classical Athens? Something not as good for Athens, of course. But despite the fall of the world's first democracy, the arts in Athens and all of Greece continued and even flourished. In the first of this two-part episode, we'll cover the sculptors Alkamenes, Kresilas, and Skopas. In the second part, look out for Lysippos and Praxiteles.

An education in sculpture history and appreciation

I have been listening from the very first podcast. As a reasonably new sculptor. I was fortunate to spend a week with Jason in his first but not the last visit to Western Australia. I learn so much in just one week working with Jason and look forward to catching up next year. This podcast has been an incredible experience learning and enjoying a new education. I have travelled quite a bit and seen many of the sculptures, but now getting to really understand and appreciate. My goal in to travel back to Italy and hopefully spend some more time under Jason’s instruction. If you are new to sculpture or just want to under stand it, you can find anything better, in my opinion.

Art history a sculptors perspective

Not one to study Art History, I do however enjoy Jason's rendition. Being able to view the art works via his website is a bonus. I like that some episodes discuss current events with other artists. Well worth the listen.

Nice work

I’m finding the episodes equally informative, useful and entertaining. Some of the technical details (for example on clay) come very handy. Well done and thanks.
