Drawing Practices: Figurative Studies


Winter 2015 quarter

Taught by

This course focuses on the traditional life-drawing practices of observing and drawing the human figure from live models.  Students will use a variety of media ranging from graphite to gouache as they learn to correctly anatomically render the human form.  Homework assignments will supplement in-class instruction and visual presentations.  Several readings will also be given throughout the quarter.  While previous drawing experience is not required, it is recommended.
