Shorelines are rich environments that are home to millions of people, plants, and animals. Throughout history, coastal and shoreline environments have inspired many artists and scientists.
In this live, interactive program, students will explore the questions:
What about nature inspires people to create magnificent works of art?
How do scientists create and use art to help them observe details and patterns in nature?
The program will begin with students thinking about their own experiences with a shoreline. Then they will examine works of art related to different types of shorelines. Finally students will practice scientific sketching methods to communicate information about their scientific specimen.
