Mannequins in Motion


A “high five” to these three for help me setup the exhibit – Thomas, Joanna and Morgan

Anatomy and Figure students merged their understanding of basic gesture lines with accurate contour drawings in this new (but fortunately successful) project.

They were asked to create a series of 6 drawings that convey a progression of motion. Web references were used to give a better visual of the progression of a baseball swing, diving into water or a ballet dancer performing. Students merged gesture marks they found in those images with direct observation sketches of wooden drawing mannequins. 

The exhibit on display on Main Street has been well-received by so many members of the NRHS community. Stop by and check out this technical, but fun artwork.
