Academic Drawing & Sculpture I
January 21, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until January 28, 2022
Academic drawing & sculpture I will introduce students to the Russian Academic method of conceptualizing, drafting and sculpting the human body. This method relies heavily on construction, composition, and anatomical landmarks of the idealized classicist form.
Students will be guided to see the human form through strong clear definition of planes that integrates the weight, proportion, gesture, and likeness of the model.
This learning approach and technique gives students confidence in their decisions as they push past simple silhouettes and think three dimensionally. They will begin to see how various anatomical planes flow together and bind a complex set of distinct anatomical structures into the totality that is harmonious composition.
