This is an ideal class for beginner-intermediate students who want to learn a simple step-by-step process to represent basic human anatomy. Students will do this using a drawing system that makes it possible to visualize the forms of the human body from every point of view.
No previous drawing training is required. These four classes are perfect for new students and also a continuation for those who took the Basic Human Figure Drawing course.
The class will be focused on the head/neck, arms/hands, and legs/feet. It will cover a great variety of poses, actions, and gestures without a model and the correct relationships between forms through analytical drawings to study the interconnections of the parts of the body. We will use proportions, measurements, symmetry, and also sketching to capture the expression of the figure.
The students will learn to build the body forms, the shape of masses of the figure in these areas: head, neck, hands, arms, legs, and feet. The structure of the head, the wedges masses of hands, the column forms of the arms and legs, and the feet wedge construction.
Students will receive a detailed class breakdown upon registration and the list of materials needed.
