Bone-croquis on October 27th, 28th, and 29th, 2023
At our drawing course, you have the opportunity to engage with selected items from the museum’s collection in a unique way: by drawing them. Get up close to bones, prosthetics, and wet specimens, observe them closely, and capture their forms and distinctive features on paper.
Croquis drawing often involves a model changing poses every minute, resulting in a series of quick sketches. However, that’s not the case here – our models have remained still for years. Instead, they invite you to indulge in ‘slow drawing,’ allowing time for immersion and reflection.
The foundation of the instruction lies in classical drawing techniques inspired by the French academic drawing tradition taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the late 19th century.
Medicinsk Museion provides materials and expert guidance from knowledgeable instructors. Throughout all days, the museum offers snacks and coffee/tea, and on Saturday and Sunday, a sandwich will be served for lunch.
