Global display creates 'quite a stir of emotions' with study of Swiss sculpture artist
An art display from Mr. Roncone’s class is creating a stir in the media center, a stir of emotions and gestures that is! Art 1 students began this project with learning human proportions and applying it to a series of 20 different gesture drawings during class. A gesture drawing is a quick sketch of a human form usually completed in a matter of a few minutes. Afterward, the students researched the work of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), a Swiss sculptor, painter, draftsman and print maker. Giacometti worked over his gesture drawings during multiple sittings, and found that when he stepped back, the prominent aspect in the gesture drawing was the skeletal form. After he made this realization, his sculptures began to also represent skeletal forms. Students were then assigned to recreate these sculptures.
