Limited to 18. Using the live model as a subject, we explore the fundamental concepts of painting the human figure. Closely observed color, convincing tonal structure, and proficiency in describing the figure as a form occupying space are stressed. Issues such as composition, value, and anatomy are addressed through demonstration and discussion, citing historical and contemporary references. It is assumed that students have taken at least one previous life drawing course. Bring vine charcoal and an 18"x24" newsprint pad to the first session. Prerequisite: A beginning drawing or beginning painting course (NART1204, NART1205, NART1208, NART1217) or permission of the instructor.
Course Open to: Degree Students
