Class Description:

Gain an understanding of how to apply structural and anatomical concepts to your figurative work.

With an emphasis on gesture, proportion, perspective, and morphology, we will create a number of works from the observed nude life model. Anatomical figure construction throughout history will be discussed, as well as the contemporary practice of anatomical form as function, with an aim towards understanding how the human figure moves and articulates.
