Interested in a career in Fine Art, Animation, Illustration, Film, or Fashion? These are just a few areas of employment that require understanding and knowledge of the dynamics of the human figure. However, most high schools are not able to provide an in-depth drawing course for this purpose.

This course offers serious students a rare opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills of the figure while strengthening their college portfolio through the practice of drawing from direct observation of life-models in a museum studio atmosphere.


The course introduces students to a variety of quick and extended drawing exercises, which explore anatomy and proportion, movement, composition and page design, distribution of weight of the figure, and the use of line and shadow to render form.
If you are a high school student who would like to develop your understanding of the figure while pushing your drawing skills to the next level in a serious studio environment, this class is for you.

About the Artist

Teresa Villani Bonillo is an artist, educator and writer living and working in southeastern Connecticut. Her personal artistic investigations revolve around the figure and human communication within sociological conditions, most essentially in the manner in which we, as humans transfer our mark upon others, on place, and within history, intentionally and inadvertently.
Teresa is determined to keep the tradition of the hand-­‐drawn mark alive through her use of both traditional and contemporary mediums and methods. The purpose of her work is not only to satisfy her individual expressive needs, but also to transport viewers to an active place of personal investigation and questioning.

Ms. Bonillo currently teaches Foundations, Drawing, Painting, Graphic Design, and Advanced Placement courses at Stonington High School and is an adjunct professor for both the University of Connecticut, and Mitchell College, where she teaches Drawing and Intro to Digital Gaming, respectively. Ms. Bonillo worked for 5 years as a 2D/3D animator for Sonalysts Studios in Waterford, CT, and has won State and National awards for her museum design “Turning the Soil: The Land and People of Lebanon”. Her works have been exhibited at museums and galleries regionally, including The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Worcester Museum, Herter Gallery-­‐UMASS-­‐Amherst, The Institute Library-­‐New Haven, Lyme Academy College of Art, The Cooley Gallery, and Studio M.
