A Rumor Is Confirmed: They DO
Use Nude Models in Art Classes
By Ron Brown
Yes, they DO use nude models
in the art school.
No, they DON'T allow them to
date students.
Dean Sidney W. Little of the
School of Architecture and Allied
Arts promptly cleared up these
perennial questions in a recent
Professional female models, usu
ally brought in from Portland or
San Francisco, occassionally pose
in the altogether for life drawing
classes, Little said. Male models
and student models, however, must
wear bathing suits, or an equiva
lent thereof, he emphasized. Little
added that any non-academic con
tact with the professional models
is taboo.
“No tirade” System L'aed
If nude models are attractions
to prospective art or architecture
students, they might be further
enticed by the fact that the school
uses a "no-grade” system in eval
uating all upper-division creative
By this system, the student
either passes or flunks in his creat
ive work. No effort is made to
grade beyond this point in any
creative work requiring judgment
and opinion in evaluation, Little
“We are I'nlque”
"We are unique in using this
system,” Little said. Other art
schools have expressed a desire to
use this sarm' method, but have
not been able to convince their
registrars of its value, he said.
Another unique feature of the
art s"hool is the fact ttiat no com
pletion deadlines are imposed upon
students for their creative work.
Students arc told the normal length
of time which should be required
for the various projects, but they
may spend more or elss than this
period of time, according to their
own judgment, Little raid.
Masters’ Degrees
The School of Architecture and
Allied arts offers nine undergrad
uate degrees and four masters' de
grees. These degrees Include, be
sides architecture, such fields ns
ceramics, painting, weaving, sculp
ture and art education.
Teacher training as well as pro
fessional preparation is included in
the school's program, Little ex
plained. The art education pro
gram is aimed primarily at train
ing students for high school teach
ing, he said. Sculpture majors are
prepared for either a professional
career or teaching on the college
Jewelry Course Available
Of the lcsH-publicatcd art fields,
the school offers work in jewelry
making and boasts a lithography
training plant.
In the painting field, the empha
sis is on contemporary conceptions,
according to Little. Strict detail

Participation In art exhibitions
Is encouraged. Besides the annual
bazaar sponsored by the school,
students’ work Is frequently sent
to other exhibitions throughout the
country, with tlie school paying the
freight charges.
Supplementary Instruction
Visiting lecturers are brought to
the campus from time to time to
supplement Instruction by .the
school's 30 Instructors.
Architecture occupies the largest
number of students in the school.
The architecture school is the
ninth largest in the United States,
with an enrollment of 410. Sta
tistically, thia means that 3.4 per
cent of all the architecture stu
dents ip the country are enrolled
in this school.
Of the architecture students,
94.4 per cent are Oregonians, which
Is nn unusually high percentage of
"local" enrollment for an architec
ture school, according to Little.
"Mortality Kate" High
The "mortality rate" of Oregon’s
architecture school is 40 per cent,
Little said. About 30 per cent drop,
or are dropped, at the end of their
sophomore year, and another 10
per cent of the drops occur during
the first part of the third year's
work, he said.
Little explained that this high
drop percentage is common to all
architecture schools. Some stu
dents’ conceptions of the architec
ture field are considerably differ
ent from the actual case and many
of them realize this after a couple
of years' work In the school, he

courses arc required in the lower
division level for architecture ma
iors. Once the student has satis
fied his lower division require
ments, he concentrates more and
more on design. By his fifth and
final year he is taking 10 credit
hours of design, which means that
he is actually spending about 50
hours per week at his drawing
board, Little said.
In this school, the student may
specialize in landscaping, design
or structural work. The structural
aspect of the field invojves more
nglneering work than the other
two fields, Little pointed out.
Demand (ireat
The present demand for archi
tects is somewhat greuter than the
supply, according to Little. All
graduates of last year's class of 53,*—
the largest class since th<- founding
of the school in 1914, were placed
in Jobs, Little reported.
