We will begin by studying the skeleton, and methodically work our way through the major muscle groups of the legs, arms, pelvis, torso and head. Each class will be divided into two parts: part one will be lecture format, consisting of slides, various other media examples, and discussion. The second part of the class we will draw from life to put our new-found knowledge into practice. Completion of beginning drawing is mandatory.
