ASSIGNMENT

You will be speed drawing gestures and actions for this class. This assignment will help you explore how to express movement, action, and liveliness visually and how the body moves to communicate action. You can choose to complete just the Core Project and draw the 10 quick gestures, or if you’re feeling up for it go all out for the Bonus Challenge, and draw 10 series of gestures!
