For centuries, art students sketched the nude human body to sharpen their eyes and hone their skills. But you don't have to be a budding Michelangelo to join the life drawing class tonight at the Maryland Science Center. As part of its Body Worlds 2 exhibition, the center is giving anyone with an interest in drawing a chance to try his or her hand at sketching the human figure using male and female models hired for the occasion as well as the plastinated human specimens featured in the show.

After a summer in which attendance some weekends was down as much as 30 percent, the Maryland Science Center confirmed yesterday that it has laid off eight employees. The layoffs came as work continued on a $40 million renovation and expansion of the Inner Harbor attraction and a day after the opening of a $2 million, high-tech exhibit about the human body. "We tried to eliminate positions that would be transparent to the visitor experience," Christopher Cropper, senior director of marketing at the museum, said yesterday.

"Behind Blue Eyes: The Life of Pete Townshend," by Geoffrey Giuliano. Dutton. 352 pages. $24.95. One thing people love about celebrity journalism is the chance to hear an artist "speak" through interviews that stress long, unedited quotes. Unlike conventional profiles, where the writer acts as a sort of filter between the subject and the reader, these quote-driven pieces simply take down what the star has to say and offer it up without comment.That may make for magazine copy, but it's hell on biographies.
