Curso: Introducción a la ilustración científica - 11-15 de Noviembre 2019, Barcelona

November 11th-15th, 2019, Barcelona (Spain)
Scientific illustration blends the discipline and creativity of science and art to produce images that serve and communicate science.
This course is designed to help scientists, science communicators, artists, and adults interested in natural history develop the observation skills and drawing skills they need to record, distill, and visually communicate observations made of natural history objects and organisms. Traditional scientific illustration techniques as well as the history, significance, status, and future directions of scientific illustration will be explored in this hands-on studio-style course.
  • Develop and improve scientific observational and visual communication
  • Recognize and transform observable scientific information into scientifically accurate illustrations for use in publications and presentations.
  • Understand and appreciate the history and function of scientific illustration as a medium for disseminating scientific knowledge and concepts.
  • Learn and practice a variety of drawing and illustration techniques that can be used in the field, the laboratory, and for fun.
