Ballet Croquis

Helsingin Taidehalli 21.2., 28.2., 7.3. & 14.3.2019

On Thursdays February 21 and 28, March 7 and 14 from 18:15 to 20:00 hours

How to catch the lyrical movements of ballet on paper? How is the body aligned when the ballet dancer rises up to relevé en pointe? The focus in the Finnish Art Association’s movement croquis lies in observing ballet movements and the ballerina’s anatomical structure.

Professional ballet dancer Jessi Räty acts as model. She graduated from the Finnish National Opera’s Ballet School in 2017. Räty has performed in the Finnish National Opera’s stage productions of Swan Lake and the Nutcracker as an apprentice, and as a child starring as the child principal in the Nutcracker.

Bring your own drawing materials. The admission fee is €8, for the members of the Finnish Art Society €5.
