Anatomy for the Artist
Course No. BMA 250 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Elizabeth Halasz
This course is required for sophomore Biomedical Art majors and is also open to elective students on a space-available basis for studio or liberal arts social/natural science credit. The course is designed to strengthen the students’ understanding and use of figure anatomy within their work. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of biomedical art, the course will have two complementary components. These components reflect a multidisciplinary approach to muscular anatomy and figure drawing. Study in this area is designed to provide the student with a good grasp of muscular anatomy as it strongly relates to drawing the figure and its proportions. This course will provide the student the opportunity to interpret anatomy knowledge by working directly from the model and human cadaver from CWRU Anatomy Department. This course is designed to provide the student with a solid basic understanding of muscular anatomy as it relates to surface anatomy, proportion and movement of the human figure. The course incorporates lectures on anatomy, figure proportion and drawing techniques linked to direct and accurate observation of the figure model and cadaver model. Offered spring.
