I’ve teamed up with dance instructor Wendy Grin to host a few Dance and Draw art workshops in which we investigate movement through different visual and performing arts.  The first workshop was inspired by Matisse, the second by Giacometti.  Each class we divided the kids up into two groups.  One would stop dance while the other group quickly captured their movement through “gesture drawing”.  After each group had a go, they all worked to convert their gesture drawings into collage to the like of Matisse, and with Giacometti they transformed their designs into 3d sculptures.  All followed up with lots of fun movement games.
