The Copy

Copy copy copy.  Come draw and explore one of the basic moves of the cell using St. Francis College's extensive collection of teaching slides and models.  For our lab activity we will be doing a quick and easy cell stain to examine normal and cancer cell morphology under a microscope.  Our microscope drawing inspiration will come from looking at cells dividing in animals and plants,  during development as well as structures that do regenerate (hydra) and don't (mammalian spinal cord).   As always, basic art supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own.

Skin and Scales

Art in the Lab is delighted to collaborate with the Morbid Anatomy Museum on a three-event series celebrating the historical context of science aesthetics.

Its winter and we are layering up to stay warm - but what about the outer coverings of our fellow birds and beasts who use feathers, fur or scales? In this fun, low key drawing session, participants will have access to microscope slides of many of creature-coverings, including human skin, snake skin, fish scales and butterfly wings. In addition to a short talk on how we think and have thought about "cutaneous appendages" (the sciency way of saying - hairs, scales, or feathers), we’ll provide some short suggested readings to power conversation after the event. Registration is capped so each participant can have unlimited time at their own microscope. Basic art supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own. The butterfly wings suggest this might be a good one for painters to bring their favorite brushes (see image below).

Wednesday, December 14 6-9pm, Anatomy labs at St. Francis College. As always, the event is free but you MUST RSVP to save your space at the microscope.

Wedneday 10/19 6-9pm

Registration Limited - RSVP required. 

 

Art in the Lab is delighted to collaborate with Morbid Anatomy Museum on a three-event series celebrating the historical context of science aesthetics. 

In 1899, the celebrated biologist Ernst Haeckel produced his best-known monograph: Art forms in nature which included gorgeously rendered images produced from microscopic observation. 

In this fun, low key drawing class participants will have access to microscope slides of many of Haeckel’s favorite subjects, including Radiolaria, Diatoms, and Forminifera.  These will be complimented by short talks on Haeckel and his work (Joanna Ebenstein) and about patterns of growth and symmetry in nature (Alison Dell) as well as the complimentarity of science and art (Irina Ellison).  We’ll provide some short suggested readings to power conversation after the event. Registration is capped so each participant can have unlimited time at their own microscope.  Basic art supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own.
