This is a structured course that looks at different aspects of drawing the body. You will first develop fundamental skills in observation, gesture, and comparative measurement, before moving on to drawing the body in space. You will also develop drawings of the moving figure, both within the studio and on location. This course is structured around four aspects of drawing the body – form, structure, space, and movement. Each week we approach drawing the body via these aspects, building towards final drawings which are of moving figures within a complex space. The course gives students confidence when approaching the figure, whilst at the same time providing a solid introduction to key skills and concepts in drawing the body. You will work observationally and experimentally, using a range of materials and techniques, to create a three dimensional sense of the body.
