For thirty years, Jon Zahourek, using his Anatomy in Clay® Learning System, has led the way in innovative anatomy education. His human and animal models are in use in more than 6,000 classrooms in the United States, providing students of all ages and professional backgrounds an opportunity to discover the working systems of the body. In the Equiken® horse anatomy workshop, participants will build comprehensive musculature by applying individual muscles of clay to an accurate, realistic scale model. The act of building this model from the skeleton out reverses the traditional method of learning anatomy, through dissection, lectures, and rigorous memorization. The Anatomy in Clay approach provides a unique alternative — an active, hands-on experience that reinforces learning and empowers participants with a strong sense of accomplishment. This workshop focuses on form and function, with an emphasis on anatomical patterns and basic concepts of comparative zoology — what horses have in common with dogs and humans, and what makes them ideally suited for rapid movement.
