“Introduction To Anatomy and Figure Drawing ”
with Instructor James Xavier Barbour
Lecture on the Upper Thorax Region
Anatomy Lecture on the Middle Third
Lecture on the Upper Back
Within this popular course on anatomy we will focus on better understanding the anatomical constructions of the human body as it relates to its essential skeletal system "architecture" and to its musculature system which provides its "dynamic force."
We will start by covering the skeletal system of the body and learning about the various planes and variations that are essential to providing the structure necessary to the body, and ultimately progress into exploring the musculature of the body in terms of its basic origin, insertion and function. Students will work from life whenever possible from the human skeleton, from books on artistic anatomy, from cadavers, and from the model when necessary.
By better understanding the internal human anatomy that creates what the artist sees on the outside of the body and the movement of the figure in a pose, students will be better able to convey realistically the figure and to more accurately describe it in terms of modelling the form.
The class will include lectures and demonstrations by the teacher as well as one-on -one critiques with students. Time will also be spent discussing construction the figure, on proportions, discussing geometric anatometry, and various other relationships needed to better capture the figure in drawing , painting , or sculpture.
