Course Description for Figure Drawing II
Figure Drawing II
Prerequisite: ART 2330C
This studio course is designed to further develop the visual, verbal and technical skills necessary to represent the figure though direct observation of the nude model. Students work in a variety of media. The course focuses on using the figure as an element in composition and reinforces the skills used in Figure Drawing I. Students are expected to develop the ability to draw the figure perceptually, expressively and with an awareness of some of the conceptual issues associated with the figure. Historic and contemporary references will broaden the students understanding of the figure as part of the visual language. With regular critiques, students will begin to make critical decisions about their work.
