If you have forgotten how to measure the figure, then I would recommend watching this video, it is similiar to what we went through in class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cb3ad2mA8y4

You will need to do this weeks reading to be prepared for the exam, it breaks down the figure measurements and basic shapes in more detail.

This week we also introduced gesture drawing, you will need to know the difference between gesture and contour for the exam (and for journals) :https://claralieu.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/ask-the-art-professor-what-is-a-gesture-drawing/
