Drawing Lab: Capturing the Human Gesture
Saturday November 2, 2013: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
This event is intended for adults and teens (grade 6 and up).
From Michelangelo's robust figures to Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending Staircase," the human body has undergone many different forms of representation.
But what separates stick figures and mannequin-like drawings from figure drawings full of life? The gesture. The gesture of a figure captures not only the static pose, but also the being that is essential in human-being.
Math Monahan, a graduate student at the U-M Stamps School of Art & Design, will lead this workshop in an exploration of the human gesture. There will also be a clothed model present who will take several poses for you to practice drawing.
