Thornapple Kellogg High School art students were able to capture delicate details in their drawings of skeletons with the help of a life-like skeleton model. The model was purchased by art teacher Tonya Woods thanks to a grant from the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation.

They also can visually inspect how the joints are formed and move.
