Dissect & Draw:        Valentine's Day Edition

Cow Heart & Lungs

Do you miss high school dissections? You are not alone. Action Potential has the right biology class for you. And the best part is, no experience necessary, no lab report needed.

On Thursday, February 8th, join us in the lab for our adult workshop series, Dissect & Draw. We are kicking off the season with a two-part workshop featuring cow heart and lungs.

The first part of the workshop will be a hands-on exploration of the anatomy of a cow. We’re talking scalpels, scissors, tissue and scrubs. The second part of the workshop involves learning how to draw the anatomy led by a professional medical illustrator. You will leave this workshop with newfound knowledge and a drawing to show off to your friends.

9 out of 10 surgeons agree, this is awesome!

If you heart this workshop, don’t take too lung to sign up!

Skills you will learn to impress your friends:

  • internal anatomy of cow heart and lungs
  • tools and techniques of medical dissection
  • terminology
  • drawing techniques of medical illustration

All specimens have been ethically sourced for educational purposes. This workshop is not suitable for the squeamish or fainthearted. There will be blood.
