Course Description

Together we will venture into a world of the body as represented through drawing materials on 2D surfaces. You will learn techniques and approaches to drawing the figure and will work in the studio from a live model.

Studio work include: drawing the body; revise those ideas; developing finished drawings; researching historical and contemporary innovations and doing creative copies of these master works; working from memory and contextualized imagination; translate sensory experience through the representations of the body.
