Visual aids are very important in teaching. Taiwanese illustrator and instructor Chuan-Bin Chung certainly knows this very well. In his anatomy course lectures, he is using only the basic age-old instrument – chalk! With it, he makes intricate and detailed anatomical drawings to aid his students in learning more about the human body. He covers all aspects of the human anatomy, from small bones and skeletal parts, to big muscles on the arms and legs and small facial muscles and ligaments. Apart from being informative and educational, Chung pays close attention to the aesthetic detail in his drawings too. That way he combines his two greatest passions: biology and art.
Answering questions for the online magazine Architecture & Design, Chung explained: “Yes, we have a textbook. But we don’t read it, we draw it. Students, majoring in this area, cannot learn by just reading the pictures in books. Instead, we learn while drawing something. In my classes, students have to draw what I am demonstrating on the chalkboard.”

Well, it also shouldn’t come as a surprise that he is pretty handy with a marker too!
