ILUS 217 Anatomy & the Human Figure

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Draw confident and believable figures through an in-depth study of human anatomy, fabric drapery, technique, and reference use. Lectures and exercises will closely examine the construction of the human form through the study of skeletal and muscular systems. In-class drawing of live models will ask students to explore topics including proportion, gesture, volume, lighting, drapery, and mark-making. Through longer projects students will apply these skills to drawings from observation, reference, and imagination. Assignments will encourage the ability to control shapes and draw confidently.
