Anatomy and Figure Drawing students are excited to showcase a wide range of drawings they have completed dating back to September. Only four months into the year, students are showing an impressive range of ability and artistic vision.

They have worked on understanding human body mechanics, all the way down to specifically naming the four muscles that make up our quadriceps: rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and the vastus intermedius.

Students have analyzed and practiced rendering basic human proportions based on rules proposed by the Roman architect, Vitruvius. Leonardo da Vinci named the figure above, The Vitruvian Man to commemorate Vitruvius’ theories on how the human body was constructed.


Crowds quickly formed around their peers’ work.
