Drawing Fundamentals: Action Drawing

Shiva as Lord of Dance (Nataraja), c. 1000, India: Tamil Nadu, bronze, The Norton Simon Foundation

4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Richard E. Scott

Join artist and author Richard E. Scott in exploring line, form, perspective and movement in the Norton Simon’s collections. Working in pencil, students will learn how to see with the eyes of an artist, improve their confidence with various techniques and enrich their museum-going experience.

Students will learn how to add emotion to drawing using gesture and movement. Looking closely at works by Edgar Degas and artists in the South and Southeast Asian collection, students will create drawings that elicit emotion, display action and signal movement.
