On March 5-6, 2020, Dr. Ipsa Jain conducted a two-day science illustration workshop at TIFR Hyderabad. This workshop was open to graduate students from educational institutions in Hyderabad. The first day of the workshop included discussions on what art and design entails, what is science illustration, and sketching exercises that highlighted the importance of observation.
On the following day, participants were divided into teams. Each team had to come up with a science illustration on an assigned topic. Research-decide layout-discuss drafts-illustrate; took almost 7 hours!
Ipsa: ‘One hour left’
A participant: ‘This feels like masterchef!’
