Emma Bresola's Original Sketches at Alberta Ballet Studios

has been a resident artist at the Alberta Ballet Studios,  since August 2013 until Nov 2013. I had the opportunity to observe and sketch the professional dancers while they were practicing in the art class. Once a week I was completely absorbed by this extraordinary experience. I made more than 100 spontaneous free-hand drawings where lines follow the fast and dynamic dancers' movements. I could sketch in a flash following the music, the brisk and fluid dancers’ evolutions. I was not interested in a realistic representation, instead I wanted to give the idea of the ballet’s essence and expressivity. These are all my originals sketches.
