    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an amazing learning experience. If you want to work hard, bond with your classmates, and grow as an artist, I highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to quickly make proportionate, dimensional gesture drawings of models by starting with their skeleton and building the muscles on top.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start early on the projects and don't underestimate the work load. Working with classmates on homework is a good idea.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're going to be doing anything with drawing people or animals, this course is for you. Within 10 weeks you learn so much more about how to draw people to communicate a certain emotion, to create aesthetically pleasing gesture drawings, to exaggerate the poses. This is where you learn some animation basics!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the model drawing every class. You learn so much by drawing every class period and it's pretty fun. I learned how to draw people more expressively and more fluidly. I learned how to draw poses that actually attract the eye.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to the open model sessions every Friday. Draw outside of class as well, draw every chance you can get and practice practice practice. It will help and you'll see so much improvement.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ingham does whatever he can to help the students. He understands the improvements for each students and will help them on the way. He is very lenient on the students and is great to talk to.

    Course highlights:

    It was mainly the presentations we were assigned to that affected the grade. He wanted to see the improvements and the effort that we put forth. The drawings were also important as well. He really cared about the fast energy you put into the gestures and the movement it has in your sketches.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for anything especially with your supplies or mediums. Make sure that you don't ever run out because almost every class is a drawing day with the exceptions of lectures or presentations. In his class, it doesn't matter if you're not an excellent drawer, all he cares about is the pose and the movement you have in your drawings.
