Cast Drawing

Cast Drawing

Cast drawing informs all aspects of the curriculum and is where students learn foundational principals that apply to all aspects of their work.

Cast drawing informs all other aspects of the LARA curriculum. This is where students learn foundational principals that can be applied broadly to all aspects of their work. The aim of the exercise is to create a highly believable, naturalistic image, and to gain an intimate understanding of the process involved. Cast drawing teaches the student how to block in efficiently, accurately translating complex shape problems, and how to understand the effect of light on form, without the complications of local value changes. Learning to locate the shadow-line and identify values correctly, as well as developing a trained eye, are key skills to be gained in this part of the curriculum. Students progress from simple features through to more complex casts that begin to emulate the drawing scenarios one might encounter in a figure or portrait.
