National Museum of Health and Medicine, Classroom
Ages 15 and up (space is limited; pre-registration required; click here to download the registration form.)
Want to try your hand at scientific illustration? The museum hosts a hands-on workshop on how to use microscopes to view germs and "animalcules" and to teach you how to draw what you see. We'll be drawing with pencils but if you have a favorite media bring it along. There will be a brief discussion of the history of illustration using microscopes, and a brief demonstration of how to use a scope. Presented in conjunction with OUTBREAK: Plagues that Changed History, on display through January 22, 2010.
