Recap :: Freehand Friday 02.28.14
By Lucca Townsend, MArch Candidate & Mike Daniels, Director for Foundation Student Support

On Friday, February 28th, 12 BAC students (6 grad, 6 undergrad) met at the Museum of Fine Arts for an evening of freehand sketching, art and spatial appreciation, and offline social networking.

Guided early on by Danny Wilde, MARC, who provided valuable insights about the Museum's history, movement, connections, and thresholds, we started in the Art of Asia area, where soft, classical Japanese music accompanied our first sketching session. Making our way from room to room, we quickly found ourselves in front of Juno, the largest classical marble sculpture in the United States. From there we sketched our way through Norman Foster's Art of the Americas Wing, finishing in vast and inspiring Shapiro Family Courtyard. Some focused on perspective, some on figures, some just doodled away the stress of their week. We all relaxed sharing time, space, and graphite. Afterward, a few of us went to Penguin Pizza on Huntington for a late dinner.

If you weren't able to join us, we'll do it again soon, perhaps drawing from a live model on campus within a couple of weeks. Check the Blog and look for flyers for more information.
