A Study of the human form is a long held tradition in Western Art.
This essential practice presents the ultimate challenge to the artist and once mastered, opens up a world of possibilities. Whether you aim to become the next great figurative artist or just find joy in the process of drawing, this course will set you on your path and will give you the tools you need to create a successful body of work! This course emphasizes the academic approach to drawing the figure from life and the various techniques and mediums used for rendering three-dimensional form. Composed of two and three week poses, each student will be given ample time to study the shapes, values and edges of the figure and explore different techniques.
Each class will begin with one 20 minute pose where students warm up with a simplified block-in to gain speed and accuracy through practice. The class will then begin the long-pose drawing or continue working on the previous week's pose. Students may choose to work in charcoal, white chalk and graphite or a combination of both. Occasional brief lectures, handouts, assignments and demonstrations will be given, topics include:
The Academic Method:
-Plumb Line, Placement, Envelope Shape and Gesture
-Measuring Proportions, establishing angles and refining shapes
-Tone and finalize shadow shapes
-Rendering forms and focus on values, edges
Historical techniques for rendering
-Line weight for emphasis
Tools and tricks for helping you see shapes and values accurately
