Figure Study I (Spring)

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

Through observational drawing this course explores the various historical methods used to describe the rhythms and structures of the human figure. The primary modes are: gesture, sighting and measuring, planar analysis (including linear perspective), contour drawing, anatomical analysis, and both optical and planar use of value. There will also be an introduction to the narrative use of the human figure in contemporary practices. (COR 102)
