Of Marc and Manes

We took a day trip out to see horses where the students sketched the horses from various angles. Just the experience of being in front of the horses changed the  quality of their drawings- they noticed the way the mane moves, and how the horse keeps swatting  flies away with it’s tail and so many other details. Back in class, they looked at the works of Franz Marc, understood his fascination with horses, studied his usage of colour, and painted their own masterpieces!
