Artistic Anatomical Drawing

Instructor: Rebecca Finelli

In this figure drawing class, students will learn the importance anatomy for creating accurate depictions of the human form that appear grounded in space. Students  learn to recognize anatomical landmarks on the surface of the body and understand how flesh is built out around those locations. Anatomical structures will be broken down and grouped into basic shapes that can be easily applied to the figure. Students will be taught Robert Beverly Hale’s five eye system of measuring skeletal proportions.  An exploration of the figure in classical and Renaissance art and  contrapposto poses as they relate to anatomy will be covered. Classes  begin with a lecture and drawing demonstration with the majority of time given for students to work from a live model and receive instructor feedback. Model fees are extra.

Covid Policy for Students in this Class

The Art League will no longer require masks in our classrooms, store, gallery, or offices. However, we ask that our students, faculty, and staff use caution and thoughtfulness when they are close to others for prolonged periods. For example, students using shared equipment in the classroom studios are strongly encouraged to wear masks for their safety, and the consideration of those around them, when in tight proximity to others.Masks are also recommended if your home community risk level is high (Alexandria is currently at medium risk), or you’ve been told by a health professional to wear a mask based on your personal risk factors.

The Art League reserves the right to reinstate mandatory masks, and additional covid safety policies should we feel local conditions warrant such action.

Most supplies and supply lists may also be obtained at The Art League Store in the Torpedo Factory, room 217.  The store hours are 11am – 5pm, Wednesday through Sunday. We offer curbside pickup at The Art League Store, allowing our customers to buy over the phone or online and then drive to our location at 105 North Union Street (or “curb”) to pick it up, without having to leave your car. Call ahead here: 703-548-8127. We offer a price-matching guarantee to our customers based on the advertised price for a specific product. If a rival offers the same product for a lower advertised price, The Art League Store will match the lower price.
