Foundation 2013 Life Drawing

One of the most challenging and compelling of all Western art traditions — drawing the human figure, is presented in this sequenced course. The figure is one of the most complex natural forms, and serves well as a model of nature itself in drawing. The curriculum provides instruction in gesture, structure, visual relationships, and mark-making using observation from a live model each week.
