The Futurists, in the earliest Twentieth century, considered the dynamism and movement as new criteria of universal beauty. With students of eighth-grade we have made these “futurists” drawings, starting from photos of an object or a moving figure.
The subject has been traced in its main contour lines with the help of a tracing paper, and then was copied on a sheet of drawing paper. The contour lines then have been “amplified” by tracing around the subject contour lines more widened, ranging expanding from the main figure. subsequently we drew some lines of force that prolong the main lines of the object to the ends of the sheet. The drawing has been colored with markers and pencils, freely. The goal was to give a sense of dynamism and movement to our drawing. Did we succeed?
