Art, Anatomy and the Skull @ PEAC
Display at Regional Office
In this course, last year, the students created a clay head and face by modeling the soft tissues upon a replica human skull. This involved learning what could be read from a skull (physical anthropology), how the muscles, glands and skin are typically formed over bone (facial anatomy) and some of the techniques for modeling facial features (artistic and forensic sculpture). The course was based on the extensive work of Dr Susan Hayes, UWA facial anthropologist.   Students had to create a “persona” for the person they had created, giving details on their socio- cultural background. Their work and research were presented to parents on the final session of the course.
