A Feeling for Movement

Students from the Harriet and Robert Heilbrunn School at the Guild recently visited the Touch Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Museum educators introduced them to the concept of movement in sculpture.  The students handled copies of ancient Roman statuary, bronzes from the Italian Renaissance and a twentieth-century Eskimo sculpture of a mother and child as well as examples of Degas’ dancers.  They were encouraged to feel the sculptures, strike the poses and then draw the movements inspired by the sculpture.
