*The Student Paintings
The paintings of the University on the cover and throughout the report are by students enrolled in last spring’s offering of Arts 271, an introductory painting class taught by Richard Crozier, professor of art. The class was evenly divided between art students and students majoring in other disciplines, according to Prof. Crozier, a member of the faculty for some thirty years. Known as a prolific painter of streetscapes and landscapes that record an ever-changing environment, particularly in and around Charlottesville, Prof. Crozier teaches introductory drawing and painting classes in the evening hours. He finds it a time when students are more relaxed and better able to fit the two-and-a-half-hour studio sessions into their schedules. The Arts 271 students were given the assignment to make their own interpretations of familiar University settings and landmarks. The works in this report are among the results of their efforts.
