The aim of this course is to examine and challenge representations of the body and how the body is used in constructing narratives through the medium of drawing. Students who are interested in either telling stories or working against the narrative form, in their artwork, will have the opportunity to develop their ideas and skills in a challenging studio class. In addition to individual projects and reading assignments, we will look at and discuss the work of artists such as William Kentridge, Charles Gaines, Charles White, Kara Walker, Robin Rhode, Ida Applebroog, Raymond Pettibon, and Kathe Kollwitz. The course will feature both individual projects and in-class drawing workshops dedicated to understanding and representing the structure of the human figure.
