Art for Animals
The figure drawing class at Southwestern University contributed to the fund-raising efforts of Georgetown Animal Shelter. At the shelter’s annual auction, people bid on a drawing session for their pets (as long as said pet is smaller than a pony). To prepare, the students first study the human skeleton from an artistic perspective with instruction in the proportions and shapes of the bones. They create larger-than-life skeletal drawings and compare them to a dog skeleton.
Here are images from Professor Varner’s class session with the winner of the auction: a blonde pit bull named Tiny. Click through the gallery at right to see some of the excellent drawings that resulted!
