Course Description

This course is designed to improve your concept and understanding of the human figure by studying the underlying skeletal and muscular structure and how it affects surface appearance. Class meetings will include observations and drawing from the model (gesture and long pose), illustrated lectures, the skeleton, plaster casts, occasional slide lectures and more. Homework is required (one hour per week minimum).

Anatomy study is best suited for students who have had at least a beginning course in drawing. You will gain an improved sense for observation, proportion, perspective, planes, structure, volume, weight, space and clarity of articulation, as well as for the visual dynamics of body movement and resultant formal changes.

Level: intermediate-advanced

NOTE: During this period of remote learning, access to a computer or other digital device is essential for attending lectures, demonstrations and critiques.
