Through inten­sive stu­dio ses­sions, this course focuses on draw­ing the live model, both clothed and unclothed. Stu­dents inves­ti­gate ways that the fig­ure is used and ref­er­enced in the work of con­tem­po­rary artists, and they explore strate­gies for using the fig­ure in draw­ings that are cre­ative and expres­sive in nature. The goals of this course include gain­ing a bet­ter under­stand­ing of the fig­ure and its sig­nif­i­cant role in the his­tory of art, improv­ing fig­ure draw­ing skills, and pur­su­ing unique meth­ods of per­sonal expres­sion through the use of the fig­ure in draw­ing. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in every win­ter term as well as in the fall term of odd-num­bered years, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
