Form VI continues to practice life drawing. Today they worked on gesture and contour drawings. The objective of these short studies is to capture the gesture of the figure. By carefully studying the model, to the point were pupils must not even look at the page upon which they draw, pupils are forced to render what they see therefore reproducing the gesture that the figure is making.
