Instructor: Gordon Milne, exhibiting artist
This class will focus on creating gesture drawings that are based on dance and dancers. We will be working with the assistance of live ballet dancers from the Motion Dance Academy and will concentrate on producing quick, loose, informational sketches intended to capture the beauty and freedom of movement. This will be a very hands-on class that encourages intense observation and a brave approach to drawing. It’s going to be challenging…but fun! Hosted in conjunction with the Fernie Museum’s exhibit, Perfect Line.
Up to 10 students.
Participants are required to bring the following supplies:
• 18” X 24” drawing paper (newsprint). Individual sheets or drawing pad. Bring lots of paper
