Drawing: The Human Form

Winter 2018 quarter

Taught by

This course will focus on accurately rendering the human form through close observation of a live model. We will start by translating what we see onto paper and progress to using the figure to communicate content. We will deepen our understanding of what we are drawing by developing an understanding of how basic anatomy affects the shape of the body. Students will be required to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter and complete drawing assignments outside of studio time each week. Students will also complete a research project about an influential artist. A final portfolio of completed assignments will be due at the end of the quarter. Some college level drawing experience is recommended.
