Upcoming Performances

The Diary of Anne Frank

Based on Anne Frank’s diary: In Nazi-occupied Holland, Otto Frank and his family have decided to go into hiding, because of the increasing persecutions against Jews. The businessman Kraler and his assistant Miep prepare a hiding place in the rooms above their place of business, and arrange for the Franks and another family, the Van Daans, to stay there. Later on, they are joined by the dentist Dussel. Together, they try to avoid detection while hoping for Holland to be liberated by the Allies, but even meeting basic needs can become a challenge, and even minor incidents could present a grave risk.

All performances are free to the public and will take place at Cumberland Hall Auditorium (CUH) 366, on the Fayetteville Campus of FTCC.

Master Copy Collaborations

For this project, students are introduced to the process of copying drawings and paintings after the masters, both historical and contemporary. By copying after the masters, students discern the working process of the masters. Students begin by blocking in the figure, then progressing through the process of creating, and finally finishing the image. Other lessons include composition of the work and how the master developed a drawing, direction of light, perspective, and the approach of the master in applying value, creating what is called the effect, a 3-dimensional quality. The students work together to complete the final image; each student receives a portion of the work, and they build their individual piece while conferring with the group. Copying the work of great artists gives students a valuable insight into the way these artists worked, and by using their same techniques, students can build a solid foundation of skills they can utilize for the rest of their artistic careers.

Finished projects are available for viewing in the Visual Arts Studio (Room 615) at the Horace Sisk (HOS) building between 12 noon to 1 p.m., after 4 p.m., and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Fridays.
