About this Course


The focus of this fundamental course is an understanding of the principles related to anatomical, cellular and physical form and function in order to render illustrations for scientific purposes. We’ll explore how to render form using light, line, measure and perspective. You’ll be given the opportunity to render selected specimen subjects in a variety of demonstrated techniques, including digitally.

Past guest speakers have included artist, illustrator and teacher Sue Burrus; and David Ehlert, a biomedical illustrator at Cognition.
