Dynamic Figure Drawing through Anatomy<br /> with Robert Liberace

Dynamic Figure Drawing through Anatomy with Robert Liberace

For centuries artists have known that a comprehensive understanding of anatomy has a profound influence on their art. From dissecting cadavers to poring over ancient texts, artists such as Da Vinci and Michelangelo studied the human form not only to improve their own artwork but also to satisfy their deep curiosity. This class, inspired by the great tradition of anatomical study, explores the intricacies of the human figure in order to craft more solid and spirited drawings.
