Futurist Inspired Dancers

Student Examples - Dancer and Graph Paper

This lesson was the result of a collaboration between my digital illustration program and the dance department at our performing and visual arts high school. Tied by the theme of the dance drama, The Grid, the Void, and the Sign, we took photographs of the dancers jumping, practiced gestural drawings during their rehearsal, and then composed digital artworks inspired by the Futurist art movement using geometric forms in repetition to show movement through space and time. The lesson covers these Adobe Photoshop skills: editing Camera RAW photographs, B&W adjustment, watercolor, pointalism, pencil drawing, woodcut effects, pattern making, selection tools, and layer masks.

​This is so awesome! The Dancer Grid Tutorial is showing that the video is private?

Very impressive unit for students to be engaged. I like the way it incorporates several humanities art, history, etc. Good job!
