Foundation in Drawing, Term 2 introduces specialised drawing methods dealing with the figure in space, accuracy through use of gridding, plumlines and advanced anatomy. There is an emphasis on proportions, foreshortening and modelling form. There is an increased emphasis on drawing methods from live observation. The module aims to hone and extend the drawing skill base of each student through specialised drawing methods. This is open to students who have completed the initial drawing module or artists who wish to build on an existing skill base and extend their knowledge.

This module will be delivered in the RHA Studio with several classes delivered via Zoom.
