Knowledge of the underlying anatomical structures is a fundamental part of confident and expressive figurative art and was until recently a cornerstone of art training. There are many fascinating and interrelated forms within the body; flattened forms, spirals, arches and curves; and they shift in characteristic yet always individual ways. We will aim to deepen knowledge of this diversity whilst maintaining a feeling for the unity of the figure as a whole, and of our response towards it. The course is conducted through demonstration and explanation, reference to anatomical examples, and with an emphasis on drawing from the life model. We will examine the individual elements of anatomy, the main skeletal, muscular and structural forms, whilst being conscious of the overall integrity of the body as a coherent system. While concentrating on anatomy we will also inevitably touch on more general issues involved in drawing the figure, proportion and perspective.
