This unique course combines traditional drawing media with digital drawing techniques to illustrate figurative anatomy and other scientific rendering. Through observation, figure drawing, and the use of line, motion, and media, you will learn how the amazing human body moves in space. We will explore human anatomy fundamentals as they relate to the development of focused artistic skills. You will learn specific methods for improving observational figure drawing. Throughout our anatomical adventure, we will utilize a variety of techniques and materials to visually reveal various anatomical layers of the human form including colored pencil, charcoal, graphite, and ultimately digital rendering in Photoshop.
Exercise both your artistic creativity and your scientific curiosity as you illustrate the inner workings of the natural world. Biomedical art is an ever-growing field and CIA is proud to offer one of the few biomedical art programs of its kind in the country
