I do not have the pleasure of teaching Life Drawing classes, but I fondly
remember my undergraduate courses. I enjoyed getting immersed in drawings
of long poses, but the most valuable activities were the gesture drawings.
I recall that we started out doing quick 5 minute sketches of the full
figure, then gradually worked our way down to 15 second sketches,
attempting to capture the full gesture and pose in quick, but accurate
drawings - various media. That did more to strengthen my visual perception
and drawing skills than any other activity.

Good luck.
