Artistic Articulation

Bone articulation, or the act of piecing a specimen together, is an academic task as well as an artistic endeavor. This specific class is an introduction to artistic bone articulation. Each student will be provided with a variety of reptile, bird, and small mammal bones and a shadow box or small pedestal for display. They will be shown how to glue and wire everything together and can make their own unique hybrid creations or create something more natural. Everyone will go home with their own custom piece. No animals are harmed for these classes or in the acquisition of these material. We work closely with breeders who save their deceased, zoos, abatement workers, and even source roadkill when legal and available.


Every student will bring home their own personalized bone monster just in time for Halloween.


Only 12 tickets available!
