We looked at the work of Eadweard Muybridge; using Lomo cameras (see www.lomography.com ) The lomos are good because they have 4 lenses to capture movement. Lomos capture movement like the work of Muybridge. We used digital copies of our photographs and manipulated. We made studies from the photographs capturing movement; ref: futurist Umberto Boccioni. We finished by studying Juming and his Tai Chi series www.juming.org.tw/juming-en/index2_en.html We had a tai chi session and drew poses; made 3D card tai chi sculptures which were covered in modroc & painted stone color.

Thank you for sharing. The power points really helped the children to get the idea of how movement could be shown in their own work.
A new perspective
I have covered this unit several times but including Tai Chi is brilliant. I think I will include a Tai Chi demo/workshop before I do this unit again. Thanks!
Thank you sooo much for sharing your plans, power points, images and sheer hard work! I can't wait to try out your ideas.
