Using a fixed armature and oil-based clay you will learn how to sculpt a 21-inch tall skeleton. This process will teach you the skeletal proportions, structure, and important anatomical landmarks visible under the surface of the skin. Eighteen hours of instruction with breaks for homework. Class 2: The Muscles will be offered in Winter 2019. THREE TWO-DAY SESSIONS - 2-week break between classes for Homework.
Session One, Day 1: You will pose your armature and apply clay over it with instruction.
Session One, Day 2: Finish blocking in and start refining all major forms. Break Homework: refine skeleton as instructed.
Session Two, Day 1: Continue to refine surfaces and map out the ribcage.
Session Two, Day 2: Refining the ribcage and other areas.Break Homework: refine skeleton as instructed.
Session Three, Day 1: Refining the surface planes and landmarks of the skull.
Session Three, Day 2: Refining and finishing all remaining surfaces.

Using Eliot Goldfinger's Human Anatomy For Artists as a guide, this class will sculpt a skeleton over an armature. This will teach the structure of the bones and important landmarks for muscle attachment.Then we will sculpt the musculature system over the skeleton. This is the best way to gain a fundamental knowledge of proportion, structure and rhythm of the human form. Materials list: Sculpture armature $125 (pre order through Jim or you can bring your own); Chavant oil based clay $11 each (4 blocks needed $44 total).
Limit 10 students.

This class prepares students to make anatomically-informed figure drawings. Students will learn to see and draw the skeleton and surface muscles through lecture, drawing, games, and hands-on exercises, plus supplementary readings and videos. Using skeletal landmarks, students will place and draw the skeleton and surface muscles on an image of a figure, and develop a shorthand drawing vocabulary for compositional sketches. The class will draw overlays of a figure in front, side and back views, plus a personal choice of a figure in perspective. Appropriate for beginners and advanced students. Students may also wish to enroll in the Monday night figure class to draw studies corresponding to the anatomy class.
