  1. Find a location where people are gathered - a park, school, cafe or zoo (if you prefer to draw animals). Sit comfortably and make several quick gesture drawings. If they are sitting or standing still, try to capture the pose in 30 seconds or less. If they are walking or moving try to capture that movement.
  2. Remember the aim is not to make a realistic drawing but to capture the energy in the pose or movement. Continue for 30-60 minutes with breaks.
