Figure Drawing

Course Code FAS-101
Lecture hours per week
Lab hours per week
Course Availability: Open
Description: This course focuses on structural interpretation and accuracy in overall proportions through the development of intuitive responses in combination with sighting techniques. Working in a number of media from rapid and sustained poses, students will draw from observation with an emphasis on developing an understanding of structure and form. Emphasis is also placed on the importance of working from the general to the specific, and students will be introduced to models of generalized structural conceptions. A variety of delivery techniques including lessons on the skeleton and the larger anatomical masses of the figure, critiques, and the opportunity to develop their skills independently, will be used.
