 Painted skulls in anatomy class

Posted March 16, 2016  

When “I hate anatomy” appeared on a canine skull in the anatomy laboratory at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, the only solution seemed to be painting over the words. Then, instructor Ashley Lynch got the idea to paint each bone a different color. Students clamored to use the skull because it was so helpful for distinguishing the bones. In the past two years, Lynch has painted 13 skulls of various species.
