The module gives students at Level 3 who wish to specialise in life studies the opportunity to work intensively from the figure to produce a body of work for exhibition.
The module aims to:
provide the student with an experience of sustained visual study of the figure.
develop in the student an ability both to analyse the human form and to interpret that analysis according to the individual’s conceptual rationale of art practice.
by means of an extended program of painting or drawing, to give the student the opportunity to resolve problems by intensive and renewed study.
promote an enhanced understanding of the creative potential of life studies within the framework of the student’s other art practice.
develop in the student a high level of proficiency in evaluating his/her own work both in relation to other students taking this module and to the work of other contemporary practitioners in the field.
provide the student with the experience of planning, preparing and staging a small exhibition of paintings and/or drawings of the life model.
encourage a high level of technical proficiency and finish in staging this exhibition
By the end of the module you are expected to possess:
build on experience gained in Life Painting 1 and 2 and Life Drawing 1 and 2 of working from the nude.
use the human form as part of a self-directed program of art practice.
apprehend an approach to the nude that will act as an interface between this module and the student’s other art practice activities
understand the processes involved in working from the life model over an extended period of time.
apply the conceptual and technical expertise derived from the academic study of the figure to another field (in this case self-portraiture)
exercise creative autonomy and possess cognisance the place of his/her practice within the field of other contemporary practitioners
