Yesterday, students participated in an illustration competition. After learning about the Acheulean stone tool industry in lecture, Dr. Harmand showed the students several Acheulean artifacts from the TBI collections, including handaxes, cleavers, and cores. Students were then tasked to accurately illustrate one of the artifacts.
Students worked extra diligently when they found out there were prizes to be won!
While students displayed varying levels of artistic talent, they all did their best to make their illustrations as accurate as possible.
Three colleagues of Dr. Harmand evaluated the drawings and chose winners for Most Accurate, Most Artistic, and Least Accurate (aka worst).
In the end, Ned won for Most Accurate, Alex for Most Artistic, and Maggie (always the good sport) for Least Accurate.
Next week, students will use their new skills to draw bone harpoon points. In the meantime, Ned and Alex will get to enjoy the bars of chocolate they so deservedly won.
