  • Overview

    The focus of this course is the drawing from the figure. Students will routinely draw from draped and undraped models in the studio. Emphasis will be placed upon learning basic anatomical terminology as it relates to the drawing process. Short, gestural studies comprise initial drawing sessions, followed by progressively longer, more intensive and elaborate poses and sessions. Students will explore all forms of mark making and drawing media techniques in the service of first recording and then working interpretively from the figure. Student articulation of drawing and design terminology in regular studio critiques will constitute an important component of the learning process. On-site visits to Roman venues staging exhibitions of drawings may be included. The course includes participation in a public exhibition of student work.
