Every week, we will have a photo of a person to base our drawings on. We will discuss anatomy as it relates to the pose of the person in the photo (bones, joints, muscles), as well as balance, foreshortening, and proportions, as applicable. Every few weeks we will concentrate on a specific part of the body (hands, feet, facial features), simplifying them into basic forms. Other weeks we will work on poses that involve the entire body. We will also do quick gesture drawings to practice...
Through constant practice, students will improve their understanding of human anatomy and their ability to draw a realistic human body.
Students may take the time between sessions to finish drawings started in class, if needed, or to do additional drawings, to be shared at the beginning of the next class. Again, practice is an essential component of artistic growth.
Students will need a sketchbook or a folder with drawing paper (even white copy paper will do), a pencil and an eraser. If students have other favorite sketching materials (pen, marker, colored pencil, stylus, charcoal) they are welcome to bring them to class if they wish.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Throughout class time, students will be asked to hold up their work so that the teacher can provide feedback. Students will be reminded of past topics when applicable, to make sure they continue to apply their knowledge of anatomy and proportions to future drawings.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
