Study of life drawing techniques including Renaissance realism, pre and post-photographic methods and covering various materials and their uses.
The aims of the module are to help students develop an understanding of human anatomy that will be of use to them in figure drawing and to encourage them to develop their skills of observation and the depiction of the human form.
The module aims to develop and improve the skills of draughtsmanship by encouraging sustained and disciplined observation coupled with an informed and ‘intellectual visual effort’.
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 developed a knowledge of skeletal and muscular structure as demonstrated in their portfolio of drawings and accompanying anatomy notebook.
The module aims:
To assist in the understanding of the human form from the acquired knowledge of human anatomy.
To encourage direct and informed observation of the human figure and develop co-ordination of drawing skills.
To encourage sustained effort and self-discipline in drawing.
To assist in the acquisition of a feeling for good proportion, balance, distribution of weight and rhythm seen in the pose.
To encourage the use of a range of drawing materials, techniques and approaches
By the end of the module students will have:
Built upon the experience gained in AR20410 Life Drawing 1 of drawing from the nude through a course of prescribed drawing projects.
Gained a greater knowledge of human anatomy, including the structure of the skeleton and musculature of the human body.
Developed an informed and integrated response to life drawing.
Developed further their experience of media, materials and techniques used in the depiction of the human figure.
Gained a greater ability to evaluate his or her own work in relation to other students taking the module.
Gained an understanding of the importance of anatomy within the context of drawing and painting as demonstrated from their own researches included in anatomy notebooks and from slides shown.
