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.
