Abstract

My research problem was to experiment with four high school art classes in drawing and painting the figure, to draw conclusions about how they relate to working with the figure, and to recommend methods that appeared to be most successful in broadening viewpoints, developing skills and increasing interest and involvement in art. This problem was selected because teenage students, in the vast majority of cases, have great difficulty in drawing or painting figures and, therefore, strenuously avoid it. I discovered that a subjective approach that recognizes personal feelings, along with one that requires close looking, seemed to get the most exciting, results and to be the best received by the students.
