Course Description

Building on your knowledge from the human anatomy classes this class will not only help you understand animal anatomy but help prepare you for the Creature sculpting class. By understanding how to break complex shapes down into simpler shapes, we can start to learn and understand how to break down all living creatures into more understandable forms. The main objective is to build a foundation of anatomy built on function, form, and flow. By learning this three-step process, students will walk away with a functional understanding of animal anatomy.
