As an artist in the world of medicine, I help med students, doctors, and other health professionals at NYU School of Medicine to see anatomy with new eyes … the eyes of an artist. My Art & Anatomy drawing class has inspired a new book and is becoming a national model for the value of art-making in medicine.
This is art as inquiry … anatomy drawing in the Renaissance spirit of Leonardo da Vinci: an investigation into the nature of human experience.
