ARTS4221 Life Drawing 5

Credit Hours: 3 semester hours
Prerequisites: ARTS3222 Intermediate Life Drawing 2

Course Description

This course has been designed in an effort to introduce and advance the study of the human figure through the process of drawing. It is a perceptual drawing course that expounds upon and requires a proficiency in the skills introduced in ARTS1101, ARTS2211, and ARTS2221. The goal of the course is to further your perceptual drawing skills, related to representing the human figure through technical exercise and the introduction of new media approaches. Our approach toward the figure will take place under two main topics. The first being an investigation into imperial, observational or perceptual drawing practices and technical material application. The second is a thorough study of visual anatomy. Both of these topics will be supported by a variety of conceptual, formal and technical approaches to introduce, refine or strengthen our approaches towards the figure.
