Giacometti-Inspired Dancing Figures

Just wanted to share the piece that my private art student did this week in our session about the figure based on Giacometti. This piece is reminiscent of his famous work "City Square," but since my student is a dancer, she chose to make four figures dancing on a stage. This added a lovely dimension to the work in that my student needed to think about how the figures were interacting with one another in the space.

After she was done, she added the shadows and then decided to add skirts to her figures like Degas' "Little Dancer." Wow, this little girl is one smart cookie! What a lovely connection.

Fabulous piece!
