This course will emphasize the primary facets of drawing the figure that have given it an enduring and prominent place in art. Drawing and representing the figure will lead to a better understanding of line, gesture, proportion, volume and composition. Concept, observation, character and materials will be discussed in relation to portraying the human figure. Classical traditions as well as contemporary examples of figure drawing will be explored. All drawing media are welcome, including ink and watercolor.
