Life drawing is a foundational drawing class that will focus on the figure. Students will develop perceptual and conceptual skills through exercises, critiques, lectures, and strong drawing practice. We will be working with a live model every day, working to gain the skill of translating what is observed through the techniques of drawing. Additionally, students will become familiar with contemporary and traditional art history as it relates to the figure.
Specific instruction will include: construction of the figure/body, figurative proportion systems including the head and face, and a volumetric understanding of the planes of the body through line and light. Students explore various black and white media, develop visual awareness, and enrich their capacity for observation and self-expression.
