Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

This studio class will focus on the drawing of the figure for use in animation, storyboarding, and character design. Students will gain a solid foundation in posing, gesture, and anatomy, and will learn how to give a character a sense of emotion and purpose. Students will gain experience and improve their drawing technique through weekly assignments and in-class exercises, including drawing from a live model.In addition to the regular meetings with the instructor, this course will include an extra 90 minute figure study lab with model per week, supervised by a graduate assistant.

This course is repeatable.
