Artwork for Poems About Dance by Dancers

This April, to celebrate National Poetry Month 2016, I created eight pieces of art for eight poems about dance by dancers. You can find the original poems that accompany these pieces on Stance on Dance.

For each piece of artwork, I tried to respond and represent the poem honestly by sketching the first images that came to mind upon reading. Also pushed myself to experiment with different mediums. I relied heavily on my favorite method (sketching with pencil, then overlaying with marker) but ended up playing with paint, crayon, and thread.
