Kelley Clayton doesn’t mind being stared at by a room full of strangers, which is good since she’s buck naked and the center of attention right now at Witzen’s Studio and Art Gallery on West Fifth Street.

She turns to the left, and a dozen people study her rear end. She turns to the right and they all focus on her breasts. She stands straight up and they look at her, umm, well, other parts.

It’s anybody’s guess what position she’ll eventually stop in, but once it happens, she’ll stay that way for up to a half hour, not moving a muscle. Then the race begins. With pencils and charcoal in hand, the group rushes to see just how much of Clayton they can get down on paper before her small, pale body comes back to life.

This is a figure drawing class.
