Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed June 13, 2014. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2014 Veterinary Illustration Selective VMC 991-29 taught by Dr. Michael K. Stoskopf, Professor of Aquatics, Wildlife, and Zoologic Medicine and of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology.
This was a one-week studio course taught at the CVM in April 2014 offering veterinary students the opportunity to hone their observation as well as their drawing and illustration skills with live observations at the Teaching Animal Unit and the NC Aquarium at Ft. Fisher. Students became familiar with basic drawing and pen and ink techniques with an emphasis on rendering from three dimensional objects, living animals, and photographs.
