During the Renaissance, drawing was considered the foundation of the visual arts. At the Academy, it still very much is. The Drawing Core presents an intensive sequence of figure drawing challenges culminating in advanced problems in multi-figure composition, life-scale and synthetic approaches. Special subjects include Linear Perspective and Cast Drawing, which explain how reality is abstracted and translated into artistic form.
“It is often said that Leonardo drew so well because he knew about things; it is truer to say that he knew about things because he drew so well.”
- Kenneth Clark
