Drawing Animals

In order to gain knowledge of how to draw animals, Artistic Anatomy has been an essential tool of the artist. In this class students will learn the proportions, the structure of bones, and the appearance of muscles in a variety of animals. In this class we will use photographic information as a basis to draw animals but students will also learn how to incorporate their newly found anatomic knowledge to enhance their drawing. No previous experience is necessary in order to enroll in this class.
