A clear explanation of gesture drawing, a technique Dave learned in his art classes at school. At another website I saw a program idea with gesture drawing: set up 12 stations around the room. Give kids clipboards, pencils/charcoal, and paper and have them move from station to station quickly sketching what they see (30 seconds at a station). The items can be animate or inanimate (i.e., object, photo of a person/animal in action, or a live subject). Compare drawings at the end.
