Anatomy for Figure Drawing
6 Week Class
Class Fee: $235 includes all materials and model fee
Classes meet Saturdays 2-4pm 4/15, 4/29, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, and 5/27. *Note 4/22 is skipped.
In this class, we will study the major muscles and bones that most affect the surface of the human form. In addition to learning about the overall structure of the figure, students will learn about important bones and muscles, and most importantly will learn how to study anatomy and find it evident in the live figure.
We will study a few parts of the anatomy at a time, learning what the function of each particular muscle or bone is and why it's an important feature in figure drawing. We will spend part of each class creating anatomical diagrams before we move on to studies of the live figure in action.
Upon completion of this class, students will have a better understanding of the structure and function of the human figure and will have the tools to continue more in depth self-study moving forward. This will lead to more informed and better proportioned life drawings and will greatly improve drawings done from imagination.
