Interested in a career in Fine Art, Animation, Illustration, Film, or Fashion? These are just a few areas of employment that require understanding and knowledge of the dynamics of the human figure. However, most high schools are not able to provide an in-depth drawing course for this purpose.
This course offers serious students a rare opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills of the figure while strengthening their college portfolio through the practice of drawing from direct observation of life-models in a museum studio atmosphere.
The course introduces students to a variety of quick and extended drawing exercises, which explore anatomy and proportion, movement, composition and page design, distribution of weight of the figure, and the use of line and shadow to render form.
If you are a high school student who would like to develop your understanding of the figure while pushing your drawing skills to the next level in a serious studio environment, this class is for you.
