Finished Figure Work


























Our "Figure Fridays" were a huge success again this year! For 8 weeks we had dance students come into the art room to pose for about 10 minutes. Each Friday, our AP students did gesture drawings of the dancers using a different medium each day, so that they ended up with a large piece of paper with layers of figure studies done in graphite, charcoal, oil pastel, pen and ink, acrylic, watercolor, chalk, crayon and colored pencil. When the 8 weeks were over, my art students had 4 days to deconstruct their figure works and create a new piece! The work is OUTSTANDING!

  1. Beautiful, I love the idea. Did they work on the same sheet for the 8 weeks? Did they cut them and add to a new sheet?
