The Art of Dinosaur Bone Beds

Visual Art Course with Jason C. Poole

Plants, invertebrates, geography, and animals, including dinosaurs, turtles, crocs, and more, are all clues to reconstructing ecosystems and events long gone. Join Jason and learn how to do science-based dinosaur art from bone beds.

This ten week exploration of the science of taphonomy, and what can be learned
from a bone bed will use real examples of fossil quarry maps and fossil site inventories. The flora and fauna discovered at these sites will guide students in recreating situations and environments lost to deep time.

Jason Poole combines lecture format with one-on-one interactions to unravel the tricks and techniques he uses to sketch snapshots in a dinosaur's life.
