Details workshop
Specialists in animal and human anatomy will dissect and explain in close detail an upper and lower arm (deep frozen and thawed), an upper and lower leg (deep frozen and thawed), a full brain, a heart with its coronary vessels and two lungs with their network of bronchi,…There will be many moments to ask questions, to draw, to paint, to dissect and to reflect and communicate on the enormously beautiful but also very fragile human body.

There are not really any easels available, as it is a dissection room, but there are some tables, and some angle poised lights, and it is pretty bright in there in general. You can bring sketchbooks, large paper, small paper, watercolors, ink, pencils , whichever you prefer to work with. Some people work in biro or felt tip pen and have some beautiful results, so it's entirely up to you. The idea is to make some quick sketches at first , and get used to the atmosphere, we have a whole day there, firstly most people just look while the medical students and anatomists dissect, and then once the dissection has been brought to a point where people would like to sit down and draw, it is then placed on a stand so people can make more detailed drawings.

We'll have a welcome reception on Wednesday 09 April 2014 at the Hostel Uppelink in Ghent. Starts at 19h00. Please contact us if you like to attend this meeting free of charge.
