In this 29-minute film, the renowned American artist Jim Dine teaches drawing at the famed Internationale Sommerakademie fur Bildene Kunst in Salzburg, Austria. The method, using male and female nude models, is rigorous: Models maintain one pose per week; students keep their easels in the same place and each day make a complete, well-observed drawing; then every morning the students have to erase their work and start again. The class – along with the viewer -- learns that the effort is not geared toward the creation of a finished product; it is the process that is all important, an understanding that is both liberating and fortifying and designed to enable the student to look and to see. Free with museum admission. Reservations are not needed. First come, first seated. Weekends only there is a $2 parking fee (members free).
