Through inten­sive stu­dio ses­sions, this course focuses on draw­ing a live model. Stu­dents inves­ti­gate ways 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 and exper­i­ment­ing with var­i­ous tech­niques. Stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion in all aspects of the course is required and is con­sid­ered in the over­all eval­u­a­tion of class per­for­mance. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is offered occa­sion­ally in either the fall or the win­ter term.
