A Different Kind of Art Class

You know The Art League School offers classes in painting, drawing, ceramics, fiber arts, sculpture, jewelry, and every other medium under the sun. Did you know there’s also a class in crime-solving?

Forensic artist Joe Mullins teaches “Mystery Solved: Facial Reconstruction” Wednesday nights at the Madison Annex. Students start with only a cast skull, and over seven weeks, they reconstruct a mystery face bit by bit. Joe was kind enough to show us a little bit of the process this week:

Joe, who is a Forensic Imaging Specialist at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, does forensic work on unidentified crime victims and recently reconstructed a 2,500-year-old mummy’s face. We blogged about some of his work in November — check it out! You can also watch other demos from Art League School teachers on YouTube.
