    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Storms is a very experienced artist and instructor that knows how to guide students when they need help. Lots of very helpful assignments that are challenging, such as multiple day studies.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of experience and practice with line drawing. I learned not to rely so much on value to make the drawing and to focus on using lines to create an accurate drawing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the assignments and practice as much as you can in your sketchbook outside of class. Seek out the optional textbooks, they're very useful as references, even after the class, to continue practicing anatomy.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for beginners in Life Drawing. It lets you see the human body from an artist's perspective. The professor is tremendously nice and supportive of the students. To get the most out of this class is to do the sketchbook assignments, it will only help you get better. I think this course is also about patience because a lot of people go in thinking it would be easy but realize that you will only see results with practice and repetition. If you want to learn how to draw the human body but also want to learn the functions and technical terms, this is the class for you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight would probably be the specific lectures on parts of the human body. For example, there was a lecture about the muscle groups that was helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't come in thinking that this will be an easy grade, even if you know how to draw. This class guides you into your own artistic interpretations of the human body. I would also recommend bringing tennis shoes, because you are standing for 3 hours the majority of the time.
