Session 1: learning shape and volume
Throughout your medical career you will be required to represent the human form in words and images to convey the patient history, examination and procedures undertaken. The drawn image is one of the most valuable records and is poorly taught in medical school. This course will take you through the basic tools of how to draw the body in realistic and diagrammatic form. 50% will entail use of human cadaver to gain skills in representation and to increase your understanding of the elements that go to make up the different parts of the body and ultimately the whole human form. You will illustrate a process which is difficult to convey in words and finish the course with an experience of Bristol’s oldest life drawing class. Course members will have the opportunity to contribute parts of their portfolio to a final show of work.
The dates will be November 2014 until February 2015
