Grades K-2. Art-making is one delightful way to experience scientific, engineering, and mathematical concepts first-hand. As artists, we'll experiment with tools, materials, and techniques to make discoveries. Using artistic disciplines, like painting, printmaking, and sculpture, we'll engage in purposeful play to see what happens when we create with concepts such as viscosity, friction, and balance. We'll work in an open-ended way, focusing on processes instead of specific subjects. Connecting disciplines while creating beauty, we'll explore the way our world works.
