About this course:

Encouraging the exploration of both contemporary and traditional approaches to the figure while improving the student's drawing techniques, this course provides a strong foundation in figure structure, anatomical landmarks, and proportion while expanding the vocabulary of line and tone. Students begin with contour and gesture drawing, then study the marking techniques of such artists as D++rer and Rembrandt. Light "logic" is studied in sustained charcoal drawings which explore cast and core shadows as well as reflected light. This course also covers composition, use of negative space, interaction of form and content, and the expressive potential of the human figure with its psychological and emotional implications. Instruction includes work with pencil, charcoal, pen, and ink.
