UA full-time instructor Charlotte Wegrzynowski took her students for a drawing session in the Alabama Museum of Natural History's special collections recently . Wegrzynowski said, "We are capping off our unit on line with some discussion of scientific illustration. We had such a good time drawing various skulls that I had to take some pictures!" Located in Smith Hall on UA campus, the Alabama Museum of Natural History's collections were begun by state geologist, Eugene Allen Smith, in the 1870s.
