Human Anatomy with Sculpture and Drawing

Tuesdays 3:30 - 5:00pm // Ages 12 & up

In this fun and enlightening course students will discover the complexity and beauty of the human body as they learn to Sculpt and Draw the many bones and muscles.  Anatomy and proportion will be covered as your student gains confidence, using graphite and clay. Students will spend the first semester learning to build an armature (the metal structure which holds the clay sculpture) and will sculpt the entire human skeleton. During the second semester students will then sculpt all the muscles on top of the skeleton, learning the form and function of each muscle and its attachment-points to to the bones. Each week there will be drawing and reading homework on the bones or muscles that will be focused on the following week.

 

Note: This is a two-semester project; therefore it is a year commitment. Students are welcome to come check out the class, but within the first week, students must commit to the rest of the school year.
