Figure Drawing I

Figure Drawing I: The Human Body as Expression
Depictions of the human are the longest historical record of our species. In this course we will learn to draw the human body as a key to unlocking that history and your imagination, to create new cultural stories. We will apply foundational knowledge obtained via deep analysis of skeletal/muscular anatomy to axioms of drawing including spatial reasoning using principles of geometry to depict the nude human form from life. You will learn to pictorialize figures meeting your creative intentions using inks, graphite, charcoal, and acrylics. Weekly lectures will survey figurative representation throughout the history of global art. Labs include application of linear perspective, movement, clothing, and implications of adornment. All levels; no pre-req; Content is connective to programs including Dance, Theater, History, and Philosophy. Lecture/Lab
