Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Application Level) Name and illustrate in a drawing the bone and muscle structure of the human figure.
2. (Synthesis Level) Accurately draw the human figure displaying proportional relationships of the figures parts to the whole.
3. (Evaluation Level) Independently observe and depict the figure in a variety of poses using foreshortening and linear perspective.
4. (Synthesis Level) Create a drawing of the figure so that the illusion of volume is achieved through a variety of shading techniques such as graduated continuous tones, cross contour lines and cross hatching.
5. (Evaluation Level) Independently observe, simplify, exaggerate or distort visual elements and normative proportions to evoke the illusion of expressive movement of the figure in a drawing.
6. (Synthesis Level) Incorporate the principles of design into the composition of a drawing of the figure.
7. (Evaluation Level) Prepare and submit a portfolio of original figure drawings displaying an understanding of the skeletal and muscular structure, an accurate display of three-dimensional illusion and foreshortening, proper rendering of form, interpretation of expressive qualities of the figure and an understanding of composition using the principles of design.
