Science and Art, Learning Packet.
Singer, Carla Michalove
Science and art have much in common. Artists as well as scientists carefully observe and communicate their subjects. Throughout time, artists have been involved in experimentation, an important scientific method which can lead to new discoveries. Both scientific developments and the ongoing history of art are cumulative. This learning packet is an introduction to two themes related to both science and art: "Space and Perspective" and "Light and Color Theory." Slide narrations for the 20 packet slides are given. Classroom activities include exercises and experiments in "Perspective and Illusion"; "Experiments with Light"; and "Experiments with Color." Contains a glossary and a 17-item bibliography. (MM)
