College Preparation: Advanced Drawing/Introduction to the Figure
This course further develops skills of observation, spatial analysis, and compositional organization. Traditional and experimental drawing activities allow the student to develop their problem solving skills by exploring conceptual challenges in a variety of media. A portion of the class meetings are devoted to figure drawing from a live nude model. Proportion and structure as well as gesture and expressive qualities of the figure are introduced. Advice and direction is available for those students preparing a portfolio for art college admissions. Includes a guest lecture by a counselor from Otis’ Admissions Office who offers information on college requirements.
