Course Purpose

As one of the main foundation courses to all artists and animators, Life Drawing introduces students to drawing fundamentals and prepares the student to draw anatomically correct structures of the human body. Students will learn to draw the human figure in based on the observation of live models as it relates to Animation and in complimenting the principles of all the other courses.

Course Goals and Outcomes

Students learn to draw what they see by using visual relationships, proportion sighting, as well as positive and negative space awareness. Artists analyze and simplify the complex forms of the human figure, strengthening their skills in gesture drawing. Students will learn to draw the human figure in correct anatomic detail based on the observation of live models as it relates to Animation and in complimenting the principles of all the other courses.
