Can art help us to learn about the science of the natural world? Can science support the creation of powerful art? Are there substantive, meaningful connections between art and science? Join us in exploring the wonder and beauty of art and science, seeking out their areas of overlap.
Art and science can be viewed as different ways of seeing, questioning, and communicating about the same world. These ways of knowing can work together to build our understanding of, and connection to, the natural world – as well as our ability to take care of it and work towards its regeneration.
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to tap into your own creativity and experience firsthand the connections between art and science. We will make art, and will investigate the overlaps between elements and principles of art and the NGSS Practices and Crosscutting Concepts.
This workshop takes place partly outdoors in Golden Gate Park, and partly indoors at the California Academy of Sciences. Registration includes admission to the Academy.
This workshop is designed for teachers who work with grades preK - 12. All educators are welcome. No prior art or science experience required.
