So I've been teaching at CalArts for about a month now, about time I share some stuff.
This being my teaching debut, each class has included its fair share of experimentation on my part. Above all, what's worked best for me are the storyboard-demos I open each class with, following a 25-30 minute gesture warmup.
Some random anatomy stuff (bones, muscles, joints) the students also keep as a printout for ref.:
But I'm more concerned with how the parts move together, and how they are used practically as tools of expression -- maybe the most experimental part of the demos:
Talkin' about legs/feet and how they can express attitudes on their own:
Oh, and I did a stroke-by-stroke demo 2 weeks ago that included how I typically draw w/ gesture:
Just this week, I wrapped my demo with some work by other artists whose works are in coherence with the class' goals. Loved putting this part together:
I have a feeling these demos will be completelyyy different in the coming weeks, but I look forward to sharing!
