Performing Medicine offers classes in anatomical drawing and sculpture within medical schools and to the general public. At Barts and The London Medical School, artist Eleanor Crook worked with the Anatomy Department to offer an Anatomical Art course to students — a unique opportunity to study the surface anatomy of the head, neck, torso and limbs, using prosections, works of art, and practical drawing lessons, The course explored how drawing can be used to look at, make sense of, memorise and explain to others the principal anatomical structures of the human body, to help build students general knowledge of surface anatomy and to offer an alternative method of revision.
“The course has enabled me to commit images and names to memory in a much more solid way than previous anatomy lessons have managed.” Medical Student
“The course provides a different approach to learning anatomy which helps to consolidate and visualise anatomical structures. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in medicine and art.” Medical Student
