Friday ARTnight: Working from the Figure

Working from nude models, students will develop accuracy and expressiveness in rendering the human figure. Instruction will be individual with an emphasis on working with each student’s strengths and experience. The class will be complemented with theory and examples in art history. It is assumed that all students taking this class have some prior drawing experience. New students should bring an 18x24 newsprint pad, an 18x24 Strathmore Drawing pad, kneaded eraser and extra soft vine charcoal to the first class. The class is facilitated by master engraver and artist Will Fleishell.

We Happy Few Performance: Dog in the Manger

"If she can’t eat, nobody will."

When the Countess Diana’s secretary, Teodoro, expresses his love for her lady-in-waiting, Marcela, Diana finds herself consumed with jealousy - and, to her surprise, in love with Teodoro. The two women begin an intense battle of class, wealth, and the common disregard for the desires of others as they fight for Teodoro’s affections.  A humorous but insightful examination of privilege, The Dog in the Manger leaves us asking, “If I raised my voice, would any of this change?”
