Science and Art Pathology workshop

Dr Lizzie Burns is both a scientist and artist, and alongside Dr Lorna Williamson talked to our Year 8 students about Pathology as a career, mixing science and art, using drawing in research and looking at microbiology.

Year 8’s made a large collaborative art piece in response to cells, bacteria and viruses. It was good to have Year 8’s see how art mixes with Science in the real world, the artist spoke about anatomical drawing and how drawing both healthy and unhealthy organs is important for the sharing of knowledge.
