Continuing Education . Pre-College Biomedical Art: Anatomy for the Artist
This unique course combines traditional drawing media with digital drawing techniques to illustrate figurative anatomy. Through observation, figure drawing, and the use of line, motion, and media, you will learn how the human body moves in space.
We will explore basic human anatomy fundamentals as they relate to the development of focused artistic skills in figurative proportion and visual expression. You will learn how the skeleton and muscles form the figure; what human structures define motion; and specific methods for improving observational figure drawing. A series of both artistic anatomy lectures combined with real figure model/skeleton observation will be the main course content. Throughout our anatomical adventure, we will utilize a variety of techniques and materials to visually reveal and conceal the anatomy of the human form including colored pencil, charcoal, graphite, and digital Photoshop.
Exercise both your artistic creativity and your science curiosity as you illustrate the inner workings of the natural world. Biomedical art is an ever-growing field and CIA is proud to provide one of only two BFA degrees of its kind in the United States.
