Anatomy for Artists and Designers
The human figure is a touchstone of visual art and design in many creative disciplines. An understanding of its dynamic and structure will help anyone interested in drawing, painting, design, story-telling, multimedia and sculpture.
This course will cover anatomy in light of important artistic principles and offer training in a drawing skill set that is direct and practical.
The approach taught is primarily concerned with the use of line to convey ideas, development of form, and a simplified design of anatomy – the basics of being able to convincingly draw a figure in space. As well as invent or abstract the figure from memory and imagination.
Through a series of drawing exercises and with knowledge of anatomy designers will gain a keener appreciation for capturing gesture (the lifeblood of drawing!), make drawings more expressive, and better understand the unique and dynamic design of the human figure – a wellspring of inspiration for artists and designers throughout history. Prerequisite: None.
