Youth Workshop

Cow's Eyeball Dissection

Calling all youth grades 6-12! Come and gain some crucial hands-on experience, tap into your inner researcher and put on your innovative thinking cap! Action Potential Lab, Toronto’s First Science + Art Lab is hosting youth-oriented workshops where you’ll explore the field of Biological Art or “BioArt,” an artistic discipline that takes inspiration from biology. Each session begins with a themed discussion highlighting collaborations between science and art. Topics range from microscopy, taxidermy, forensics, dissection, guerilla gardening, medical illustrations, scientific imaging, ecology and genetics. Come and use both sides of your brain by attending these workshops.

Workshop Description: Cow's Eyeball Dissection

Aristotle did it. Da Vinci did it. Damien Hirst did it too.

That's right, all three of them explored the internal anatomy of animals through dissection. Now you can too! In this Youth Workshop, we will be learning about how animal cadavers are used in the study of fine art and science. Thereafter, we will be guided through the step-by-step process into the craft and skill of dissecting a cow eyeball.

*All cow eyes have been ethically sourced for educational purposes.
