Gesture drawing is when one makes drawings of the movements or gestures of the body.  The student needs a model to make a series of poses for the student to draw.  The model will “freeze” in a pose to allow enough time for the student to capture the gestures.  The drawings are not meant to be realistic with details.  They can be loose like scribbles capturing what the body is doing.  The art tutor will remind the student that gesture drawings are supposed to be loose and expressive and  to move away from the habit of outlining the figure.
