What you'll learn in this drawing class:

Within this popular course on anatomy we will focus on better understanding the anatomical constructions of the human body as it relates to its essential skeletal system "architecture" and to its musculature system which provides its "dynamic force."

We will start by covering the skeletal system of the body and learning about the various  planes  and  variations  that are essential to providing the structure necessary to the body, and ultimately progress into exploring the musculature of the body  in terms of  its basic origin, insertion and  function. Students will work from life whenever possible from a real human skeleton, illustrated lectures, and books.

By better understanding the internal human anatomy that creates what the artist sees on the outside of the body and the movement of the figure in a pose, students will be better able to convey realistically the figure and to more accurately describe it in terms of modelling the form. 

The class will include lectures and demonstrations by the teacher as well as one-on -one critiques with students.

Time will also be spent discussing construction the figure, on
proportions, discussing geometric anatomy, and various other
relationships needed to better capture the figure in drawing, painting, or sculpture.
