ARTT 206 - Figure Drawing II

A continuation of ARTT 205 , with further analysis and exploration of the concepts and techniques introduced in ARTT 205 . Emphasis is placed on more complex problem solving in the visual interpretation of the human figure as a separate study and in relation to its environment. Students will use a variety of black-and-white and color drawing media. PREREQUISITE(S): ARTT 205  or consent of department. Two hours lecture, four hours studio each week. Formerly AR 215.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate creative problem solving through the application of abstract theoretical concepts, development of observational skills, and the use of technical skills.
  • Employ a mark-making system to represent a convincing sense of the dynamics of the pose. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Integrate complex figure and environment relationships in two-dimensional terms. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Employ a variety of conceptual approaches to analyze and represent the figure in its environment. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Integrate media, technique, and expression in the development of a personal visual idiom for representing the figure in its environment. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Develop a conceptual framework to understand, represent, and communicate about the visual experience of the figure in its environment. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Utilize expanded art terminology in reading, writing, and oral critiques to analyze and discuss the technical, aesthetic, and conceptual components of a drawing. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Demonstrate the ability to accurately represent proportional relationships in a wide variety of poses. (Observational Skill)
  • Employ anatomical knowledge and demonstrate an understanding of figure structure to solve complex problems in foreshortening. (Technical Skill)
  • Utilize anatomical knowledge to understand and represent specific surface features of the figure. (Technical Skill)
  • Develop the facility for quickly representing the action of the figure in increasingly complex poses. (Technical Skill)
