The last time we sat and watched someone draw, it was a caricature artist at an amusement park. He made the girl's nose really, really huge, and she cried and cried and wanted her money back. Did she really think all the people drawn before her just happened to have oversized facial features? But we digress. Here's a live drawing "performance" that's sure to be less traumatic. Chong Keun Chu, a local artist who is represented by Cidnee Patrick Gallery and teaches at Brookhaven College, is completing a month of live drawing at the Studio Gallery, 3900 Elm St. in Deep Ellum, with a session from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The results will be on display through August 15 with the artist returning to the gallery for a closing reception August 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The drawings will form a series about how viewers and environment affect the artist and the creative process.
