Synopsis: This subject offers advanced specialisation in the skills and concepts related to the exercise of drawing the human figure. It deals with technical understanding but also with the cultural position of the genre in the context of current Fine Arts practice. In studio classes using life models and through projects which cultivate curiosity and inquiry, students investigate and create rich images involving the human figure. A practical study of the work of historical and contemporary exemplars of figure imagery is an important part of the subject.

Assessment: By folio 100%. Inital project or work-in-progress is assessed in the first part of the semester and contributes a weighting of no less than 20% to the final assessment.
