This is a comprehensive course covering artistic anatomy as it applies to the human body. Over eleven chapters the body is divided into sections covering all major topics from head to toe. Special emphasis is paid throughout the class to providing important and relevant information including the origins, insertions and actions of each muscle presented.
The course attempts to broaden students appreciation of anatomical artists throughout history, prominently using the work of 19th century sculptors as a benchmark. Beginning with review of the skeletal structure and it’s landmarks the class explores all important aspects of anatomy and dives into detail on topics such as facial anatomy and it’s role in expression.
The course is taught using both 2D and 3D methods and represents an expansive amount of information which is best digested in chunks and revisited through personal study.
