Analytical Artistic Anatomy


While medical anatomy has changed over the centuries, artistic anatomy has basically remained the same since the Renaissance. This drawing course focuses on the artistic anatomy, analysis of form and construction, and capturing gesture. Weekly lectures and demonstrations examine major muscle groups of the human figure. Course covers structure and anatomy of the head, the neck and shoulders, the upper torso, the abdominals and pelvis, the upper leg and the lower leg, the upper arm and the lower arm, and the hand and the foot. Students complete skeletal and muscle studies in class with additional work at home. Students draw with graphite, Prismacolor pencils, charcoal, or Conte pencil. All work is done on 18”x24”paper.

Prerequisite: XDWG1014 Life Drawing, or equivalent

First class materials: 18”x24” drawing paper, 18”x24” newsprint paper, charcoal pencils (HB, 2B, 4B), kneaded eraser (large) sharpener, retractable knife, 9”x12” sketchbook.
