At the same time as extending drawing skills a greater emphasis is placed on personal experience and, where appropriate, on the use of the figure within the students' work.
The aims of the module are to help students develop further their skills of life drawing and to foster a more personalised approach to drawing the nude. While formal teaching will be offered to the students on a one to one basis, it is expected that each student will form a personal course of study, determined partly through discussion with their tutor, that will allow them to investigate the ‘nude’ in a manner that is of specific use to them.
By the end of the module it is hoped that students will have become more self-confident and will have developed a series of drawings that have informed their working practice in other areas.
The module aims:
To provide a supplementary study in life drawing at Level 3 to facilitate further experience in working from the life model and to further enhance the student’s knowledge of the processes of life drawing.
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 foster a creative and innovative application of technical facility through the development of a personal programme of studies that arise out of previous experience in the life class.
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.
By the end of the course the student will have:
An advanced knowledge of the process of life drawing.
An approach to the figure that is relevant and applicable to his or her studio work.
Be aware of the role that life drawing has in contemporary art practice amongst artists in this country and abroad.
An analytical and critical approach and take initiative in assessing the work, defining problems and devising a plan of action based upon that assessment.
Investigated the applicability of a variety of different technical solutions and drawing media explored in the process of life drawing.
Developed innovative and challenging approaches to rendering the subject matter.
Maintained a high level of motivation, commitment and productivity.
