Figure Drawing

Complex formal, psychological, and theoretical problems related to working from direct observation of a live nude model through the practice of drawing. Students will consider the body as a tool and as a subject, rich with conceptual possibilities that challenge conventional approaches to figure drawing. Readings and discussions will examine topics such as the tradition of the figure, the relationship between the artist and model, the dichotomy of the naked versus the nude, and identity. Introduction to a diverse range of artists will provide a historical framework and emphasize the figure in contemporary art.
