This unit has a quota. If you cannot enrol this unit via eStudentCentre due to the quota, please contact the unit coordinator for permission to enrol.
This unit provides learning experiences in a range of principles and practices pertaining to drawing the human form. You will build skills in observation and in the pictorial principles of line, proportion, structure, volume, and space.
Classes are structured around drawing from the life model. In addition, you are also expected to undertake regular exercises in observational drawing in a sketchbook, journal or similar. One-on-one consultation, class discussion,,and critiques supplement practical sessions. Together these will assist you with how to draw, how to respond analytically to your work as it is being created, and provide you with relevant technical information.
While life drawing has long been the cornerstone for painters, sculptors and printmakers it is also essential to contemporary animation, film and design industries where intricate understanding of the human body moving in space is central in giving animated figures a real sense of life and individuality. The unit is designed to accommodate students with various backgrounds and experiences, studying visual arts and other disciplines.
