human anatomy

studying bones and muscles

Working on a 4 foot x 6 foot chalkboard, I rendered a photo of a Cirque du Soleil perfomer for our anatomy block. I chose it because of its clean, minimal lines, and bold graphic nature - and it was do-able in a 2-3 hour time frame! The picture demonstrates the graceful strength of the human body at its most disciplined and conditioned nature.  It expresses the concerted functions of the skeletal, muscular, and neurological systems. He will be balancing himself in this position for the duration of our four-week block!

This is an incredible chalkboard drawing. Graceful and Strong. A vision for 8th grade.
