The Kidney and NEPHRONS
In this lesson we will be looking at the structures in the kidney that you might be able to see with a naked eye.
I I would like you to draw a kidney, including the pyramids and their nephrons and the blood vessels therein.
USE THE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO OF THE KIDNEY – AND THE MODEL FOR LABELLING
This weeks art task is to see if you can use a range of shaded pencils to create depth and highlight those structures that come into the fore.
The final piece of work should take you about 4 hours.
Watch all the videos and learn how to sketch and shade the kidney and vessels. You can sketch and watch along or watch then sketch. Its up to you. Upload your finished piece of work
Kidney Images to draw and label
Here are the images of the kidneys as they would be found in the body.
As always there are the vessels carrying nutrient rich blood through the kidneys for filtration and the ‘tubing’ to carry away all that is filtered towards the bladder.
You need to know which are the blood vessels coming into and going out of the kidney- in addition to the kidney ‘piping’.
The dissection as always is a little tricky to identify anything so for ease you can either draw the black and white dissection or the model to help label (the colours aren’t what they’re really like).
Your drawing has to be labelled.
Try and make a note of what each of these structures does.
Where have you met some of these structures before?
Watch this video first of how to shade and how I have drawn my kidney
Labelling sheets and reference diagrams
Have a look at the human kidney below. See if you can label the following structures. How does this image make you feel?
You need to label:
pyramids of renal medulla
Did you get some of the structures correct?
This is the image we will be copying. It has labelling on it to hep you refer to the anatomical parts as you go along. See if you can recognise the structures from the image above.
When you start drawing, in order for it to be accurate you can use a grid or tracing.
Using a grid enables your drawings to be kept to scale. Draw a grid 4×4 and then see if you can place the organ and vessels accurately
Label your drawing with the following….
