Taught by CFA Faculty, Evan Kitson, the muscular system gives life and narrative potential to the human figure. Through the study of the form and function of the muscular system, we're able to gain a greater insight into how the body may compose itself. In this six-week online course, we'll spend each lesson on a major system of movement in the human figure. In these studies, we'll prioritize gesture, proportion, perspectival cues, structure, as well as character. We'll be making use of historic drawings, paintings, and sculptures as our dissected source imagery, giving us a wide variety of materials and methods to discuss in addition to the anatomy. This course is ideal for someone looking to get into artistic figure anatomy, or for someone looking to refine their current anatomical knowledge. References will be provided. Material use is very open. Class recordings will be available for a minimum of six weeks after the final class session.

In these drawings, we'll prioritize gesture, proportion, perspectival cues, structure, as well as character and action. We'll be making use of photography, historic drawings, paintings, and sculptures as our dissected source imagery, giving us a wide variety of materials and methods to discuss. This course is ideal for someone looking to get into figure drawing or someone looking to refine their current figurative skillset. Optional references will be provided. Material use is very open.

On Sunday afternoons I'll be able to offer online mentorship via Zoom. I'll work with you to help answer any questions you may have with your work in a personal one-on-one meeting. I use my iPad to complete "draw overs" and demonstrate visual concepts, ensuring that my feedback and instruction is very clear. These sessions will be recorded for you so you'll be able to return to them as you need to. Each session will be one hour, and we'll meet once a month. I'm only able to offer this to 8 Patrons each month. At the start of the month I'll send you a form with a few questions to help me prepare for our meeting, as well as your personal zoom link for our scheduled session. This is a great option if you're looking for specific guidance, or just don't have the time for an online class.
