Studio Art and Drawing: Figure Drawing

We are working on Figure Drawings in Studio Art and AP Studio Art class this week and as we have done in the past we will do a number of figure drawings each period.  We'll use a few different techniques such as drawing with the opposite hand, gesture drawings, blind contour drawings, and using multiple colors.  The focus in our figure drawing work is improvement so we'll pay special attention to getting a likeness, body and face proportions, hands and feet and including details in the drawings.  Remember these will be graded differently than other work because you'll have an opportunity to choose your 5 best drawings that will be assessed in comparison to your earlier drawings rather than assessing all of them.
