"Cadaver Portraits" talk at Yale School of Medicine

Our eyes are always open, but how much do we really see?

That’s the tag line for the Learning to See series at Yale School of Medicine’s Program for Humanities in Medicine this Spring.  On March 31st I’ll be leading a bone-drawing workshop and giving a presentation, “Cadaver Portraits.”  

 I’ll present drawing as an alternate mode of learning and a way of dealing with the complicated dynamics of the cadaver lab.  Looking at anatomy through the eyes of an artist, we learn to appreciate the uniqueness of each body’s inner space, and use those details to bring our drawings alive like portraits.
