4th Grade Gesture Drawings

October 17, 2023

Students collaborated to take turns modeling and drawing each other in action poses. They used the gesture drawing technique, a fast, scribble-like drawing that captures the mass and movement of a figure. Students analyzed their model’s pose before drawing and critiqued their drawings at the end of art class. These drawings represent the artist’s best attempt at gesture drawing. You can read their reflection statements next to their artwork.
