Seated Figure of Mercury, by Parmigianino

Figure Drawing 1

This class begins the process of developing the student’s ability to represent the human figure in pictorial space, clearly situated on a perspective ground plane. Emphasis is placed on gaining an in-depth understanding of the body’s underlying geometry and anatomical structure. A conceptual model of the figure is developed by correlating drawing from the live model with the study of Old Master drawings and plaster casts. Students learn about the characteristic contours of muscles and how body parts move in relation to one another and to the picture plane.
