    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for a studio artist, but it is very fundamental and helpful in learning how to draw the human form. The human form is very complex. It is very tricky to get the proportions correct especially if the form is not standing straight.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. While the class was very repetitive at times, it helped me a lot in perfecting my drawing skills. Practice makes perfect. It was interesting drawing the models that came in because they were all different body types. I learned about the basic proportions of the human body and how to capture movement and muscle structure

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come willing to learn and draw a lot. If you are pursuing a career in illustration or drawing, then this is the course for you. I can definitely see a major improvement from the fist drawing to the last.
