Intermediate life drawing class

7 Feb

Here’s where Zen training back in the day comes in handy: When you have to hold your pose for a half hour. Also: It’s always freezing in the zendo, as it was yesterday in this classroom at the Glassell School of Art. Whatever the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is spending its admission fees on, it’s not frittering them away on space heaters. I was only kidding, but I’m told they do have space heaters.

After I’d held my four poses — actually the same pose four times — for the local students’ figure drawings, I slipped into my clothes, crossed the street to the MFAH and looked at international abstraction.
