About the course:

The course provides a broad understanding of the depiction of the human form. You will gain knowledge about form, volume, perspective and anatomy, as well as how to make use of hues, light and shade. We will study the construction and anatomy of the human head as well as the major muscles and learn how to use them in character design. The course includes teacher-led model studies and theoretical elements which will provide both in-depth knowledge and useful tools for future studies.
