Live Model Session a Highlight at Sunway College Ipoh’s Figure Drawing Class
by Anne Das
Did you happen visit to the Van Gogh Alive exhibition held in KL recently? And experience sketching on canvas?
Sunway College Ipoh had a similar activity, having recently conducted a Figure Drawing class for their Diploma in Graphic Design students. They learned about body proportion and different kinds of muscles. The class was conducted by Andrea, a young and talented lecturer cum artist, who guided the students through a series of sessions, culminating in a final assessment that required the students to draw a live model.
The students were able to acquire the necessary skills to draw a human figure with the right body proportion through the repetitious practice of drawing human figures in different poses. The use of a live model for their final assessment provided a great opportunity for the students to showcase their creativity and skills. The class was conducted in a relaxed atmosphere, aided by the use of soothing jazz music throughout the session.
It is impressive that students who had never tried drawing before, because they were from the science stream, were able to produce such great drawings. This speaks to the effectiveness of Sunway College Ipoh’s approach to education, which is designed to provide a holistic learning experience for the students.
Striving to produce graduates who are leaders of the future, Sunway College has positioned the Figure Drawing class as a prime example of how the college provides creative, innovative, purposeful, and meaningful lessons to achieve this goal.
