St George's Pathology Museum would like to invite staff and students to an Art and Pathology workshop

Wednesday 11 June, 2-4pm

Join artist Lucy Lyons in the pathology museum for an opportunity to examine specimens from the unique historical collection.  This workshop is about perception and discovery around these specimens and we encourage anyone interested - regardless of artistic ability - to attend. We will be using a mixture of pencil and ink to draw our interpretation and gain new insights into these fascinating specimens. Selected artwork from the workshop will be displayed as part of the public event series The Art of Medicine later in the year.

We are delighted to welcome artist Dr Lucy Lyons who will lead the session. Lucy is lecturer in drawing research at City & Guilds of London Art School and artist-in-residence at Barts Pathology Museum where she coordinates 'Drawing Parallels: artistic encounters with pathology,' a collaborative Share Academy research project with UCL and QMUL, funded by the Arts Council.

Since 1999 she has worked in medical museums investigating the role of drawingas a valuable method for honing observational skills, gathering clear information, gaining insights and better understanding of a broad range of experiences within medical sciences.

This is a free event and is open to SGUL staff and students only.   No prior experience is required and if you have any preferred materials e.g. watercolours, sculpture feel free to bring them along.  Please email to book a place.
