• The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    …students enjoy working with clay, and I love working among them, teaching, helping, and listening. It’s so gratifying to hear them using anatomical terminology when they don’t even know I’m listening.

  • The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    I have seen a dramatic increase in student interest, enthusiasm, and understanding. I even have parents telling me how much their kids love anatomy and using the ANATOMY IN CLAY® Learning System.

  • The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    I am not exaggerating when I say that (the) ANATOMY IN CLAY® System has changed my life as a teacher and an artist. It has provided me a way to share with my students a tactical knowledge of the body.

Want to Hear From Us?

The Anatomy in Clay® Learing System is being used as key component in Colorado State University’s Anatomy Camps this summer. High school students come from around the country — North Carolina, Minnesota, Texas, Wyoming and, of course, Colorado — to spend a week studying anatomy. The camp uses hands-on learning and is aimed at students interested in going into pre-med majors in college. Students have dissected real anatomical specimensand looked at case studies to diagnose medical problems and study technology based cross sectional anatomy. Yesterday (Sunday, July 24) the students spent time with the Anatomy in Clay® Learing System, learning anatomical terms and building some muscles with clay.

Students are amazed by learning the patterns we share with other animals. Here they study the similarities and differences of the pectoral subsystems of the canine and horse.

Learning comparative anatomy through with our models and clay is empowering, profound, and successful. Anatomy in Clay® Learning System and Anatomy in Clay Centers Jon Zahourek Renee Zahourek
