Observational Drawing for Science
This workshop is designed for scientists, educators and science students. It will introduce the tools and methods of disciplined observation needed to render accurate, verifiable images for the purposes of science. The workshop is especially helpful in developing keen observational skills and illustration skills when photography is not effective or possible. Applicable to the Life sciences, Physical sciences and Earth sciences.
