A three day workshop in anatomy drawing for artists at the Arts Complex in Edinburgh, taught by figurative artist Alan McGowan, on the weekend of 13th - 15th April 2012. The course is conducted through demonstration and explanation, reference to anatomical examples, and with an emphasis on drawing from the life model. We will examine the individual elements of anatomy, the main skeletal, muscular and structural forms, whilst being conscious of the overall integrity of the body as a coherent system. While concentrating on anatomy we will also inevitably touch on more general issues involved in drawing the figure, proportion, perspective etc. OUTLINE COURSE STRUCTURE Day One (10am-4pm) Overall structure of the figure. A closer look at the structure of the torso. Identification of the main skeletal elements and surface landmarks. Musculature of the torso. Day Two Muscular and skeletal anatomy of Pelvis and upper leg. Lower leg and foot, (drawing feet). Day Three Muscular and skeletal anatomy of the head and neck. Arm and hand
