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 assist the student in developing an approach to the figure which is applicable to his or her other studio work.
to encourage the use of different techniques, media and approaches to drawing the human figure.
to develop an understanding of the way that different methods of and approaches to drawing can be used as a means for fully exploring the potential of the nude as a subject.
to provide a context in which the student has scope for the personal development of concepts and techniques within a supportive environment.
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.
to build upon the experience gained in AR10120 Art practice 1 and AR10420 Art Practice 4: Life Drawing of drawing from the nude through a course of prescribed drawing projects.
the acquisition of a greater knowledge of the technical processes and creative possibilities involved in drawing from the life model.
to develop the student’s ability to evaluate his or her own work in relation to other students taking the module.
to understand the importance of life drawing as a means of sharpening skills of observation and recording.
· 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.
