CLARK, NJ - Gesture Drawing is a technique designed to help an artist express movement and the basic form of a subject. Third and fourth grade students at Saint John the Apostle School, were learning to master the skill recently during their Art teacher, Mrs. Kathleen Carolan.
Individual Students were asked to strike an “action pose” and the class quickly drew a rendering of where limbs and joints were situated in action in proportion with their figure. Through this technique, students are learn to facilitate the study of the human figure in motion, as well as explore action and its effects on the body.
Saint John the Apostle School is a faith-centered academic community based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. They commit to serve all regardless of race, nationality or religion. To prepare students to be responsible adults in an ever-changing world, their goal is to focus on academic excellence as well as instill spiritual, moral and social values. Registration is ongoing.
