The objective of this class is to understand anatomy in terms of shape, form and function. For each week we will study a different portion of the upper human body, find ways to simplify the muscle and bone structures, and how these impact or are impacted by the movements of the body. Through a series of sculpts, we will attempt to find ways of simplifying the human figure in ways that are easily understood and easily recreatable. Focus will include shoulders, head, neck, back, torso regions and arms. Full body sculpture focus and lower body will be addressed and studied in the 2nd portion of your Anatomy training.
During the 2nd half of your Anatomy training, you will be learning key fundamentals of tying in the upper body to the lower extremities and how it will affect your full form. You will learn about the key fundamentals of recreating believable and fully functioning anatomy.
