Acrylic nude, Shreveport

The human form on canvas is an eternal supper. Own a nude and never go hungry, is what they say on the Rive Gauche. And where does the creation of this feast begin? With a model and an artist and a few brushes and, one imagines, some paint. Or it may begin with large slices of bread-like paper and a few coals retrieved from the eternal fire.


At any rate, the artists of this burg may go back to the roots of the business of art this week. Artspace offers a Life Drawing Session Thursday, from 7 to 9 pm.


"It's $7 for the 2 hour/2 model session," says Noma Fowler-Sandlin. "If you have questions, you can call me at 349-1568 or 673-6535. Bring your own supplies and turn off your cell phones." Then, the wry Noma adds, "Draw draw draw."
