Prerequisite: ARTS 508. (3 credits/lab fee)
The human figure is ubiquitous in all forms of art. The study of structure, proportion and
movement as seen in the human figure is key to the understanding and appreciation of balance,
design and the interaction of objects within nature. An in-depth study of the figure in clay,
including anatomy and articulation using the life and costumed model. Figurative abstraction,
casting the figure and considerations for finishing and firing figurative work will be covered.
Individual sketches, projects and critiques will serve to aid in the development of exhibitioncriteria.
