This year long course explores the realistic and expressive depiction of the human form primarily in two dimensional media. Working primarily from the live model, exercises will be undertaken that address gesture, proportion, movement, anatomy and structure, and composition and expressive form. Students will experience a variety of media and formal approaches to the figure, working from nude, draped, and clothed male and female models. One of the primary goals of the class is to develop the ability to create the human figure from imagination, based on intensive emperical study of the forms and structures of the human body from life. Although most of the work takes place in class, some outside study is required.
