If I can’t make it to the live webinar, can I watch them later?
We’re working on that. We plan to allow streaming during the week following each presentation. But be aware that technical issues can happen with recordings so we can’t guarantee they will all be available. Joining in person is the ideal.
I don’t know anatomy very well — is this course too advanced for me?
I usually recommend not to study Bridgman without knowing anatomy, but the point of this course is to make it easy to learn Bridgman and a bit of anatomy at the same time.
So here’s my commitment: If an eleven-year old who doesn’t know anything about drawing takes this course, they will learn a lot. And I hope pros and fellow teachers of Bridgman will also learn, even if not a lot.
How can I get prepared?
You could study the names of the bones and major muscle groups as prep for this course. I’ll give that assignment halfway through the course anyway. One weekend’s homework is to learn every bone as a name, shape, and (if you can) a form, so you may want to get a head start on that.
Otherwise, go through the Bridgman book and pick out your favorite drawings! You’ll spend a month extracting lessons from them.
Also, collect other images of human figures such as photos of models or athletes in action to use for analytical studies as we go.
