WEBSTER was much possessed by death 
And saw the skull beneath the skin; 
And breastless creatures under ground 
Leaned backward with a lipless grin. 
- T.S. Eliot, Whispers of Immortality

The skull is the most direct symbol of death, as well as the structure lurking within every portrait. The Morbid Anatomy Art Academy offers a workshop on drawing the skull, both from observation and from the imagination. Different approaches to understanding the pleasingly complex structure of the skull will be explored, and different ways to draw the structure demonstrated. Skull models will be provided to draw from, as well as basic drawing supplies – brown paper, charcoal and white chalk.

Participants may bring any other drawing materials they wish.

Chris Muller is a visiting Arts Professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he teaches figure drawing, digital painting, and the cultural history of clothing and architecture. He has worked as a set designer, exhibit designer, and illustrator, and is co-founder of the Comparative Anatomy Task Force.
