Comparative Skull Drawing

In Partnership with The Mütter Museum and sponsored by the Friends of the Warminster Library.

In this lesson students will create a drawing from images of real human skulls in our famous Hyrtl Skull Collection. Close observation will show students how skulls are shaped differently and can inform a variety of forensic determinations such as age, stature, sex, and racial background of a person. We will discuss these differences in the skulls, as well as learn about Dr. Hyrtl, why he collected the skulls, what his collection accomplished, and how it is still being used today. 

Please bring to the program the following supplies: 

  • paper
  • pencil
  • eraser
  • rulers
