Figure Drawing I
Prerequisite: ART 2301C, and consent of instructor
This course gives students' a thorough understanding of the structure and anatomy of the human figure through direct observation and measurement of the nude model. Students render the human figure using proportion, weight, form and mass. Skills developed in previous drawing classes will be further refined in relation to the human figure. Historic and contemporary references will broaden the students' understanding of the figure as part of the visual language. Through regular critiques, students will begin to make critical decisions about their work.
