Saturday 21 January 2017, 10:45 – 15:30

Suitable for students in Year 10 and upwards

Discover how French artist Auguste Rodin explored his fascination with dance and bodies in extreme acrobat poses through a series of experimental sculptures and remarkable drawings of leaping, twisted figures.

Following a tour of the exhibition by a Courtauld Gallery Curator, which offers a rare glimpse into Rodin’s unique working practices, you will work with an art historian and contemporary artist to explore experimental methods of capturing expressive movement through clothed life drawing, and create your own portfolio of works in response.
