Kinetic Drawing

Lately we've been moving BIG in the style of visual artist and dancer Heather Hansen.  


The students were pretty stoked on watching videos of her making her giant, symmetrical kinetic drawings, and everybody got a chance to try it out! 


We worked on gross motor skills, symmetrical and coordinated movement, and experimented with new art making techniques. Despite primarily being an individual activity, it turned out to be a real spectator experience, with kids suggesting different positions and colors to each other as their classmates worked on large scale drawings.



Hoping to someday try it out with big kids and charcoal, but for now, little kids and crayons was very fun. 
Lesson plan is here
