This course features lecture material that Mindy delivered to her anatomy students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2020. Beginning with the skull, she breaks down each of the skeletal structures in the body with a clear proportional system, presenting simple shapes and geometry within each complex form. From there, the musculature can be easily layered from deep to superficial tissues in distinct regions of the body, helping students to better understand the forms they see on the surface of the figure.
Melinda Whitmore is a fine artist and anatomical sculptor teaching courses in oil painting, figure sculpture and anatomy in Chicago. She is a co-founder of Vitruvian Fine Art Studio, and also teaches anatomy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in the Medical Humanities department at Northwestern University Feinburg School of Medicine.
