This class will focus on creating gesture drawings that are based on dance and dancers. We will be working with the assistance of live ballet dancers from the Motion Dance Academy and will concentrate on producing quick, loose, informational sketches intended to capture the beauty and freedom of movement. This will be a very hands-on class that encourages intense observation and a brave approach to drawing. It’s going to be challenging…but fun! Hosted in conjunction with the Fernie Museum's exhibit, Perfect Line.

You could be forgiven for thinking that with a theme like ‘play’ this was going to be a fairly light-hearted edition of the FIX, but I have to tell you that I’m not feeling very fun right now. Life is about balance, right?
