Exploring the Detail in Dinosaurs

Drawing is often used by scientists to explore and investigate further. Looking closely helps us to discover more about the world around us. To celebrate National Draw A Dinosaur day, Manchester Museum’s Curator of Earth Sciences David Gelsthorpe, recorded this family friendly activity exploring the detail in Dinosaurs through drawing. Join David for a step-by-step guide to sketching Manchester Museum’s iconic T.rex Stan and drawing a reconstruction of a Stegosaur. David will also show you how to label different dinosaur body parts.
