Figure Drawing (CSDR 112)

Pursue an in-depth study of the human figure through drawing. Using both skeletal and live model sessions, you will learn to render the human anatomical structure using direct observation, measuring proportion and composition techniques. Practice different technical methods such as gesture or contour drawing to capture and convey the form, energy and emotion of various poses. In-class exercises will include short and long poses, and sketching for more complex and experimental compositions. This course is suitable for those with previous drawing experience.
