Skull Days of Summer Party: Comparative Skull Drawing presented by the Mutter Museum
Fri, August 19, 2022 3:00 P.M.
Thomas F. Donatucci, Sr. Library
In this lesson students will create a drawing from images of real human skulls in our famous Hyrtl Skull Collection. Close observation will show students how skulls are shaped differently and can inform a variety of forensic determinations such as age, stature, sex, and racial background of a person. We will discuss these differences in the skulls, as well as learn about Dr. Hyrtl, why he collected the skulls, what his collection accomplished, and how it is still being used today. Drawing supplies are included in the lesson.
