I'm Aaron, I love to draw from life, and like to practice super quick sketches of moving figures.
This is genius - a really different atmosphere and subject to most life drawing sessions. It's a wonderful challenge balancing and capturing the sensual, seductive aspects of the dance, with the usual academic, de-sexualised approach to drawing the nude body. I especially love the freeze-frame dance with 1 min poses - what a unique opportunity! The dancers are all really skilled too. I've really loosened up and done some wonderfully evocative quick linework with these quick poses. I highly recommend this class for any artists who want to improve their skills drawing figures in movement, or who feel they've tightened up too much and need to free up some expressiveness.
