"Step into Leonardo's Shoes in Sunny Sydney - 5 Day Workshop in Drawing Human Anatomy Specimens"
2004-02-16 until 2004-02-20
University of New South Wales, School of Anatomy
Held at the University of New South Wales, Faculty of Medicine, with artist Susan Dorothea White and anatomist Dr Brian Freeman this annual five-day workshop offers a rare opportunity to draw anatomical specimens that are normally accessible only to staff and students in universities. In the steps of Leonardo da Vinci, participants study and draw muscles, tendons, fascia, and joints of dissected body parts. The advantage compared to conditions 500 years ago is that today’s specimens are embalmed, professionally dissected, and free of blood.
Drawing sessions are held in a spacious well-lit laboratory where specimens are displayed on steel benches while a conference room serves for illustrated talks on anatomy drawing and the human figure in art history. Comprehensive course notes and easels are provided, as well as morning and afternoon refreshments.
Science and art meet under the guidance of Susan Dorothea White and Dr. Brian Freeman both experts in their field. Personalized tuition is provided for all levels in an informal workshop with16 participants.
Interstate and overseas participants are welcome. For further information and advice on accommodation, contact Lorraine Brooks (Administration),
