By April 7, 2021July 27th, 2023No Comments

Applied Anatomy Art Clinic – Thursday 10:00 – 12:30pm

Thursday, February 22 – March 21, “Arms and Hands

Applied Anatomy Arms and Hands is all about arms and hands! We will go over how our arms and shoulders attach and work with torso, and devise ways to simplify those incredibly difficult hands. We’ll look at the important muscles, bones, and tendons, and discuss ways to effectively incorporate the knowledge into our figure drawings. We’ll spend three of the four days working from the live model, applying our new knowledge into practice. Students are encouraged to work in charcoal, pencil, or conte crayon. Please note there is an additional $40 model fee paid in class.

This is an intermediate to advanced level Art Clinic.
