This exciting and intensive workshop is for equine enthusiasts, trainers, artists, vet techs, professionals, veterinarians, riding instructors, breeders, massage therapists... anyone who would like to understand how horses are made to move.
Class participants will build comprehensive, functional equine musculature in clay on scale model horse skeletons. Jon Zahourek, anatomist/artist and creator of the ANATOMY IN CLAY® Learning System, will lead you through creating the horse body in clay. This innovative approach makes anatomy both playfully simple and profound, and helps you to retain this knowledge through kinesthetic learning.
Discover the underlying simplicity of anatomical pattern that "speaks body language" to your own body, so that your understanding of the horse is as powerfully intuitive and artistic as it is scientific. Build the anatomical "ideas" expressed in evolutionary and embryological events that create the patterns common to the horse and man -- and to all mammals.
