Georgetown Fourth Grade artists recently finished a huge figure drawing unit. They began by looking at the art of Edgar Degas, who was a master at drawing the human figure and known for his pastel drawings of ballerinas.
Then they tried their own figure drawings…modeling for each other and doing a series of quick gesture drawings in their sketchbooks.
Next we moved on to drawing wooden mannequin figures!
Finally – they created a background by straw blowing paint and outlining their beautiful blotches…and adding their figure drawings and other practice forms on their background. Magnificent!
