Seventh Class: Bones and Muscles

In class assignment 1: In your sketchbook or on cartridge paper, using pencil, copy the provided drawings of skeletons and skulls and da Vinci’s drawings of dissected muscles–double the size and include the labels naming each bone or part of the skull.

**If you missed class find online skeletons, skulls and Da Vinci anatomical drawings to work from. Draw one full skeleton, two views of a skull , and two da Vinci drawings of dissected muscles.

In class assignment 2: Search the magazines in the class (or at home) and find 6 figures (people, male or female) in dynamic or interesting poses. Use white and black china markers or other drawing materials to draw full skeletons in each of the figures. Label the major bones.

Assignment 3: Search the magazines in the class (or at home) and find 4 large heads (male or female). Use white and black china markers or other drawing materials to draw detailed skulls in each of the heads. Label the major parts.

Optional: Glue your skeleton figures and/or skull heads to a surface to create a narrative.

Homework: Finish for homework. Also, for this week and/or next week find or make textured/coloured/patterned/toned surfaces to draw on for next class with the figure. Invent a process and document what you did. Use traditional or unusual materials. Bring all your drawing stuff and a variety of paper for figure drawing next class.
