The leading textbook for college figure-drawing classes, DRAWING FROM LIFE provides a clear, comprehensive, and thought-provoking guide to drawing the human form for anyone interested in exploring this time-honored artistic tradition. For centuries, drawing the human figure has given artists the tools and vocabulary for creating paintings, sculpture, drawings, or prints-from Renaissance classical to contemporary expression. In addition to working from the model, the figure-drawing student needs instruction in anatomy, history, and conceptual approaches to drawing the human form; such instruction is often missing from life drawing classes due to time constraints. DRAWING FROM LIFE offers these elements, along with a tremendous selection of drawings that represent the broad range of approaches, techniques, and media for drawing from life. The chapters follow the natural development of a student's growth, from fundamental sketching and gesture drawing to creative expression and exploration. An entire chapter on drawing the figure in perspective offers information that is not available in comparable textbooks. Students begin with quick sketches and gesture drawings, giving them a non-threatening introduction on a level they can readily understand and master. The cohesive presentation of anatomy, including a chapter on the human head, helps students understand the human structure and its impact on visible form. The final section brings the concepts, vocabulary, and history presented in the earlier chapters to bear on contemporary use of the figure in art.

"The textbook follows much of my thinking and beliefs so it helps to reinforce points in the classroom. I find the illustrations are wonderful, great examples of the concepts."
"The level of writing used in this text definitely meets the needs and abilities of my students. This book not only helps the students expand their vocabulary, but it also allows them to understand how the elements of art and the principles of design apply to figure drawing."
"I found the quotes in the chapter opening refreshing. It gives the reader an inspirational view of art...'In the Studio' provides the instructor with a wonderful recap of the lessons taught in the chapter and provides a step-by-step approach for the lesson."
