The human form is, in the most basic sense, the medium of the theatre. In this class we will learn to draw it, covering gesture and movement, line, proportion, modelling and shadow, and the basics of anatomy. We will draw from both nude and clothed models of a variety of body types, and embark on field trips to draw people in a variety of architectural and natural settings, learning to render the figure in relation to their environment.
