If you enjoy both marine biology and art, this class is for you! In this companion course to Prof. Emma’s In-Depth Marine Biology class, we will explore principles of scientific illustration, expand students’ basic drawing skills, illustrate marine organisms across many phyla and study the evolution of scientific illustration. Weekly 30-minute classes will consist of guided sketches for the first half of the course, and lectures later in the course. These will be recorded and available after class so students can adapt guided illustrations to their own pace.
This course is beginner-friendly but also gives students many opportunities to freely choose drawing subjects.
Keep in mind that this is a companion course for In-Depth Marine Biology, taught by Prof. Emma. It is required that you are enrolled in or have recently completed In-Depth Marine Biology when enrolled in this course.
