    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor gave valuable critiques to my work, which helped me to improve each week. He allowed us to resubmit an assignment for a chance at a better grade if we reworked it according to his critique. The instructor also participated in our online discussion topics each week and encouraged us to critique our classmates’ assignments.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlights were learning about the major muscle systems and the skeletal system of the human figure. The course gives the student a better understanding of the skeleton and how the joints move as well as the major muscle masses. I learned how to identify the bony landmarks on the surface of the body, which gave me a point of reference and allowed me to better determine where the plane breaks were in my figure drawings. I also learned the functions of the major muscles which helped me to create movement in my figure drawings. Lastly, I learned the importance of copying a master drawing. This was an exciting part of the course and very enjoyable process. I learned that consistent practice pushes you to be better at your craft and these master drawings inspired me to learn even more.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to participate in the weekly online discussions early in the week. Make sure to read your classmates’ discussion submissions before you post so that you can add something new to the discussion. Don’t wait until the end of the week to post. I would also advise you to purchase one of the recommended textbooks on human anatomy as it will help you with your drawings and give you additional information for your discussion topics. Lastly, I would advise you to review the instructor’s critiques on your assignments and your classmates’ assignments. This will help you to improve.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Valerie is an amazing teacher and literally wrote the book on Anatomy for this course. When I took the class, she also had an arrangement with a local school for students(Anatomy II) to participate in cadaver study.

    Course highlights:

    Valerie is very thorough in her demonstrations of drawing anatomy. There was plenty of class time to draw from models. Lectures were very informative.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't short yourself on time to do homework. For any art class, homework should take at least 15hrs per assignment.
