Art Department hosts open drawing sessions

Observed art of the human figure

By Ashleigh Bowman/

Every Friday the art department hosts a weekly event called "Figure Friday" in Loveland Hall, studio 14.

From 2-4:30 p.m. art students can come observe a hired nude model and create a painting or drawing. All mediums are allowed. The event gives art students the opportunity to practice drawing the human figure and create works outside of class.  Students currently taking 2D or Drawing 1 with Professor Michelle Ghisson, have the chance to earn bonus points for coming to "Figure Friday" because she monitors the event.  

Any questions about applying to be a nude model or the event can by answered by Professor Ghisson or Professor Michelle Vitali.
