This figure drawing course allows students to exercise and develop both observational and constructive drawing skills. Students continue their study of gesture, the effect of light and shade on form, planes, constructive anatomy techniques, and achieving effective proportion through daily drawings of the draped and undraped figure. Character development, pose, composition, and illustrative storytelling themes add interest to the studies. Students use charcoal, conté crayon, inks, and pastels on various drawing surfaces. At the end of this course, students shall, in a variety of media, have improved their ability to apply perceptual, geometric/constructive, and anatomical modes to the drawing of the clothed and unclothed human figure, and be able to place figures in a coherent storytelling setting.
