We train Research Assistants in the scientific illustration of reptiles and amphibians — their anatomy, morphology, physiology and conservation. We train in both pen and ink as well as digital renderings using Adobe PhotoShop and Illustrator to create compelling graphics for scientific research. We produced an annual exhibit, starting in 2016, featuring the illustrations of our interns in a galleries in Decatur + Atlanta. The event is called The Ribbit Exhibit, which raises awareness for amphibian declines and conservation.
