The Human Body and Visual Art


  • Jenna Lee Stevens Tennessee Technological University


In the spring of 2017, Professor Melissa Geist, Professor Kimberly Winkle, and Vice President of Student Affairs Mr. Marc Burnett co-instructed The Human Body and Visual Art, an interdisciplinary Honors Colloquium supported by the Tennessee Tech University EDGE QEP Grant for creative inquiry. The course employed a variety of art mediums and formats to explore anatomy and physiology through creating art. By challenging students to think critically and learn using multiple modalities, the course ultimately encouraged a deeper understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
