Academic Art - cast drawings by students from Thomas More College of Liberal Arts

Here are examples of cast drawings by freshman students at Thomas More College of Liberal Arts They study the academic method of drawing. This is a systematic drawing method that developed in the High Renaissance and can be traced back to Leonardo. The name comes from the art academies of the 16th and 17th centuries that established it. We are lucky to have the world renowned Ingbretson Studio closeby in Manchester, New Hampshire. During the spring semester, students spent each Wednesday evening (that's about 12 sessions) at the studio. This is a sacrifice of time as they received no concessions in regard to their other studies. The results are excellent, I think you'll agree. The students whose work you see are Elizabeth Rochon and Nicole Martin. Each drawing is approximately 24''x30''.
