PIMS is in the process of completely re-vamping the Restorative Art Lab experience for campus and DE students. PIMS contracted with a Nashville special effects artist to build synthetic heads with the feel of “embalmed tissue”—these heads have been designed with traumatic or pathological injury (an example of each is presented in this letter) enabling the students to perform restoration/waxwork that is more consistent with actual field experience. January’s class will be the first to enjoy this hands-on experience!
