Saturday 09:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Art Workshop 107

This studio course is dedicated exclusively to the effective articulation of the nude human form, with particular attention given to the various ways in which three-dimensional structures are developed on a two-dimensional surface. Using a variety of drawing tools and drawing techniques, we shall explore such Visual problems as contour, volume, movement, proportion, tone, shadow, and modeling. The skeleton will be studied as well as the visible musculature.

The course is accessible for students at all levels who seek sustained practice in life drawing. Work outside of class is expected. Students will provide their own drawing tools and should bring them to the first meeting; a supply list will be available on the GLSP Web site. Additional course fee (for some paper and for models): $50.

A Note About Supplies: A small packet of supplies, the basics, will be available for purchase at the first class meeting. The instructor will also discuss additional materials at the first meeting. Please bring a checkbook.

John Frazer (B.F.A. Texas College; M.F.A. Yale University) is professor of art emeritus, whose paintings have been featured in 23 solo exhibitions and more than 30 group exhibitions.
