DC Sketchers Class @ Trapeze School of New York - DC - Saturday, 11/20/2010

The DC Sketchers class from Capitol Hill Arts Workshop met at the Trapeze School of New York in DC. I introduced the challenge of gesture drawings while we observed the brave and talented students of the school's Intensive Flying Workshop. The sketchers captured the dramatic movements of the flying trapeze.

Gesture drawing proved to be a challenge for all. This mode of drawing is very quick and intuitive and not easily understood in an intellectual way. It needs to be experienced and practiced. At the end of the session, the sketchers gathered to share and discuss each others work.
