Copyright © Stephan Orsak

Study of anatomy has been critical to figurative art for centuries. The materials to learn anatomy for artists are well-known, however this course will provide a guided tour through the limitless resources to apply this knowledge to figure drawing. In this class, students will learn the vocabulary of human anatomy, volumes and relationships of the bones, and skeletal landmarks, in order to draw a simplified mass overlay and anatomical overlay from a figure drawing. Each week will cover a different part of the skeleton. Course syllabus includes numerous external references for students to continue working outside of class.
