Rhode Island School of Art & Design
Providence, RI
Dates: Thursdays + Fridays 06/30/11 - 08/05/11
Time: 9am-4pm

This intensive course in human anatomy for the artist combines careful perceptual study of specific models' bodies with clear conceptual interpretations of the essential forms of the human body. During class time, students sculpt in plasteline clay from live models. Outside of class, students work on an ecorche, or flayed figure, in which they first sculpt a skeleton and then the muscles. This combination of perception (looking) and conception (analysis) increases one's ability to visualize the human body as layers of overlapping, bulging surface forms on top of rigid, planar and symmetrical core structures. In order to develop this theoretical construct, the course focuses on the body's proportions, the types and ranges of joint movement, and the relationships between underlying structures and surface morphology. Ultimately, students are able to look at a model from one point of view and visualize it as a systematic structure that can be simultaneously seen and understood from all views in the mind's eye.
