February may be a great month for lovers, but it's a bad time for many students, who suffer depression, anxiety, and problems with relationships. Come and see what can be done to boost your self-esteem and reinforce your pride in being yourself.
This imaginative drawing of an octopus fused with some shells was drawn by Bart Stroobants, a Drawing 200 student. The class, taught by Holly King, has mounted an exhibition at the Redpath Museum, the venerable natural science institution on the McGill campus.
Concordia students often go to the Redpath to do observational drawings of the fossils, plants and animals there, but exhibiting them was the brainchild of Marilyn Berzan-Montblanch, who had spent time there last year as part of a community art research project for her Master's of Art Education.
Montblanch visited King's class and was fascinated by her "transformative" approach. The students were instructed to do realistic drawings of the models, and then transform them into works of imagination. The class includes first-year Fine Arts students and others just taking the drawing course as an elective. Their exhibit continues until March 10.
