What is it?
Aesthetics of Anatomy is a unique opportunity to study the surface anatomy of the head, neck, torso and limbs, create great works of art, and take part in practical drawing lessons. Anatomy is at the heart of medical education and life drawing can expose the medical student to a range of physiques beyond the text book whilst opening their eyes to the beauty and intrigue of the body. There is evidence that it sharpens observational skills.
