Artists and scientists take a variety of approaches to drawing the human face and its ability to express emotion. They work from live models, from works of art, from anatomical or skeletal models or from specimens. In the Life and Death Drawing workshop, we question how the nature of the model affects the practice of drawing and the understanding of drawings itself.

Join us to practice your drawing skills by sketching from a life model, from anatomical models and from other works of art in this afternoon workshop facilitated by Dr Chiara Ambrosio, Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science, Dr Carole Reeves, Senior Lecturer in Science & Technology Studies, and Mat Paskins, Teaching Fellow, Science & Technology Studies.
