An introduction to the valued resource of the human figure as a subject in art. Working from male and female models, nude and costumed, we will try many approaches: objective (clearly seen), subjective (deeply felt) and, of course, all shades in between; quick gestural sketches as well as extended studies; the whole figure, and details of the figure; and the figure and space as compositional elements. We will try a great many drawing materials. A detailed list will be provided in class.
