Grade 1 Clown Portraits



Chalk Rubbing Gesture Drawings

Gesture drawing is one of the building blocks of figure drawing, helping artists better understand human anatomy. 
The essential goal of gesture drawing is to capture the human body in motion.
Second Grade students took turns posing for three or four minutes.   Students chose a pose to draw then cut an original stencil.
