In Life Drawing, students learn the classical principles of drawing through careful study of the human form. The human form has traditionally been a focus of art training due to the infinite variety in structure, size and emotional makeup. Students primarily practice drawing from live models. Assignments include quick sketches from short active poses and more detailed drawings from long poses. Drawing from live models enhances an artist’s powers of observation and memory, essential skills for anyone working in the visual arts.
Students learn many skills in Life Drawing that will apply to future study, including figure construction, modeling to create volume and form and the use of various wet and dry media.
