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.
