The Art of Scientific Illustration: Drawing Animal Skulls



Description

Bone and skull renderings are used by scientists in many fields of biology and archeology, and the illustrations themselves can be beautiful works of art.

In this workshop, students will be provided a variety of genuine animal skulls (from the extensive collection of Rest In Pieces Taxidermy) to draw from life. We will discuss a brief history of scientific illustration followed by a tutorial on several traditional techniques used by illustrators to render bones. Students will finish the workshop with their own detailed animal skull illustration.

This workshop is appropriate for artists of any skill level.

This was an excellent class! I learned so much and I didn't think that I could draw that well after having not drawn anything in a while but turns I could thanks to this class. The education and history given from the teacher was really educational, meaning I learned and it has inspired me. I would recommend this class for and artist graphic, design or other there is methods to be learned here.

Helpful to learn explicitly about the process involved for scientific illustration. Wonderful examples of work and an encouraging teacher.
