Chemistry and Art: Developing Understanding Through Metaphors, Materials and Media

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop, we will explore how art-making can be done in science class to facilitate student understanding of science concepts. At the Boston Arts Academy in our chemistry classes we devote a unit to the connections between chemistry and art. We are looking to refine our curriculum to include more art-making throughout the course. Participants in the workshop will have a chance to be students as we teach a short chemistry lesson and then will be asked to develop a proposal for a visual, performance or written work of art that shows understanding of the concept through metaphor or media choice. Participants will see sample student work from our chemistry and art unit and be a part of a discussion of how we can improve our curriculum
