Human Form Course Overview
Monday, March 12, 2012
Our inspiration for this class is Michelangelo, and the more contemporary artists and teachers who came out of that stream; George Bridgman, who taught 'Constructive Anatomy' and figure drawing for decades at The Art Students' League of New York and, Burne Hogarth's 'Dynamic Symetry' . Hogarth was an artist, teacher and illustrator who co-founded the School of Visual Art in NYC. We study figure drawing while taking turns doing one, five, 10, and two 20-minute poses in street clothes for the class. Beginning with a gesture sketch, students learned how to construct the figure in geometric shapes and then make the forms more organic, before finally rendering the drawing visually during a long pose of about 40 minutes.
