Using the sheet of paper provided, draw 3 unique motions figures.
If you are painting, try using steady lines from thick to thin.
Step 2: Working in pairs: 15 minutes
Each partner will model a motion of their partner's choosing, which that partner will draw on a larger sheet of paper provided.
Each will take their turn to model a full-body action pose. Examples of such action poses include: climbing a ladder, bouncing a ball, dancing at a rave, lifting something, skiing, running. The idea is to form an action that takes-on an interesting body position.
Trying several poses till you find the pose you deem most interesting.
Think of your action while you model for your partner.
Before drawing look for big general shapes for example the rough shape of the head, torso, arms, forearms, hands hips, etc...
Look for the major lines that form the body. Establish the "spine" line that runs from the top to the bottom of your model.
Try to accentuate or exaggerate the major portions of the body that are involved in that particular motion.

""Wire Sculpture of a Dancer"" by Sinthia Cousineau
Part 2: The Wire Sculpture
Objective: -To create a wire sculpture (8-11 inches tall)
Cut wire to be about one foot in length. This will be the wire you will work with to create a motion sculpture.
Use the stronger and heavier gauge wire (example: clothes hanger) to create a cope "spine" for your sculpture.
Build the volume of the body parts upon this "spine" with lengths of thinner wire (19 + 20 gauge). Wrap the wire around to creat volumes of shape.
Try to add detail, put focus on emphasizing the position and action of the body.
Note: Create the wire sculpture based on one of the motions of your previous drawings.
