ARTS 112 - Anatomical and Figure Drawing


4 Hour(s)

This course will focus on drawing the human body. The course will begin with a brief survey of historical anatomical illustration. Basic drawing tools-line, value, texture and composition-will be reviewed and then used to draw body parts, with special attention to how the musculoskeletal system informs their shape and appearance. Intensive study of the limbs, torso and head will be followed by detailed drawing of the skeleton and internal organs. Additional traditional more ‘artistic’ approaches to figure drawing will complement the technical skills learned from the anatomical approaches. Six-hour studio plus outside assignments.

Prerequisite(s): ARTS 020  or ARTS 111
