Gesture Drawing in Action
Earlier this month, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade artists thought about how to use lines to capture movement. We talked about warming up for different activities, like sports, dance and music, and how we could warm up in art. For the first half of class we warmed up through gesture drawing, sketching quickly to capture different poses. We focused on drawing their gesture, rather than adding details.
We took turns posing for each other, which was a lot of fun! We thought about making our gestures active and interesting for people to draw.
Even though we were all doing quick sketches, without very much detail, we realized that our figures still looked different depending on where we were sitting and our angle.
