Life Art Drawings Exhibit at Shimberg Library

A sampling of charcoal drawings that first and second-year medical students completed as part of a recent Life Art Drawing session are on display in the Shimberg Health Sciences Library at USF through December. The drawings of the human model are accompanied by enlarged black-and-white photographs of USF Health photographer Eric Younghans, who captured the class in session. Impressions of the students who participated in the elective activity are also included in the exhibit.

The Life Drawing class was conceived by Chris Phelps, PhD, former chair of anatomy, and Lois LaCivita Nixon, PhD, course director for On Doctoring at the USF College of Medicine. Students were invited to participate in a Life Drawing class to consider medicine‚Äôs central focus — the human body, in a slightly different way.
