Brief description

Introduction to life drawing including the study of an anatomy and covering various methods of drawing, eg proportion, tone, foreshortening.


The aims of the module are to help students become fluent in figure drawing and to encourage them to develop their skills of observation and the depiction of the human form.
While formal teaching will be offered to the students on a one to one basis, they are expected to become self reliant and to develop the means for working in a self directed manner.
By the end of the module it is expected that students will have become more self-confident and will be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. Through peer group discussion and informal group crits, it is hoped that the students will have experienced a variety of approaches to drawing.

The module aims:


· To develop a comprehension of the continuing relevance of historical and contemporary techniques of and approaches to figure drawing and how they may be adapted.
