This 6-weeks Human Anatomy overview course, is specifically directed toward the needs of the artist that wants to reach the next level when drawing the figure accurately: all the anatomical and structural aspects of the Human body studied in this course, will be directly linked to the practice of Figure Drawing.

The topics discussed will be: proportion, skeletal structure, landmarks of the body, superficial anatomy, external forms. All these topics will be integrated with drawing techniques and figure drawing sessions.

This course can be of interest to the artist that needs to have a complete but essential overview of the human anatomy or as good starting point upon which to eventually develop the study of the human anatomy with more specific courses, finally it can be of interest to the student that already has experience in anatomy but needs a refresher or just practice more Figure Anatomy.
