Four-legged model helps VC art students learn about anatomy

Victoria College students in Debra Chronister’s Art Fundamentals class welcomed an unusual model to campus on Thursday afternoon. The art students studied the underlying anatomy of a living creature in order to draw it more effectively. They then painted a skeleton onto the horse to better understand where the skeleton is situated and made several sketches. Pictured, student Cheyenne Kelly paints on Mardi, her horse she brought to class for the study while Morgan Flessner, left, holds an anatomical drawing of a horse. Other students taking part in the painting project were Christina Barrientez, Aaron Ulcak, Zak Blundell, Reyna Esparza, and Erika Ortiz. Mardi was even-tempered as students examined him from head to toe and used water-based tempera paint for the skeleton art.
