Art Feb.26 to March 2

Students have finished their Surrealism Projects.

Hand Study

Many artists have found the study of anatomy as not only useful but essential in art studies. Even Leonardo Da’vinci studied the anatomy of his subjects before creating his final art pieces. Many scholars take the sketch of a ladies hands created by Leonardo to be  a preliminary study for “Ginevra de’ Benci “. Hands carry a personality with in them this is why they are so fascinating. The only real challenge, then, is the complexity of this remarkably articulated organ: it’s almost like drawing a small figure onto a larger one, one doesn’t know where to start. Tenth grade students will begin this study by sketching the bone structure within the hands.
