3. Figure study

Inspired by the previous dance class, we took the children’s favourite dance pose and drew that particular ballet pose on a large-format paper using charcoal. Special attention was paid to observing body proportions. We then moved onto exploring complementary colours, and painted a free figurative composition with gouache. It was a great learning lesson but also fun for the kids, who worked in a concentrated way, demonstrated by the wonderful results. Time flew by so fast that suddenly it was the end of the class and we hadn’t even realised that we hadn’t taken a break.
