Art in Chemistry: Chemistry in Art. Second Edition
Greenberg, Barbara R.; Patterson, Dianne
Teacher Ideas Press
This textbook integrates chemistry and art with hands-on activities and fascinating demonstrations that enable students to see and understand how the science of chemistry is involved in the creation of art. It investigates such topics as color integrated with electromagnetic radiation, atoms, and ions; paints integrated with classes of matter, specifically solutions; three-dimensional works of art integrated with organic chemistry; photography integrated with chemical equilibrium; art forgeries integrated with qualitative analysis; and more. This is a complete and sequential introduction to General Chemistry and Introductory Art topics. In this newly revised edition, the author, a retired Chemistry teacher, gives extensive and in-depth new explanations for the experiments and demonstrations, as well as expanded safety instructions to insure student safety. This new edition is enhanced with essential questions, challenge activities, new and revised activities, additional explanatory material, answers to the activity and demonstration questions at the end of each chapter, and more safety warnings. This new edition can be used as a textbook for college students as well as grades 7-12 and can be modified for grades 5 and 6. The book can also be used as a resource for a combined approach to art and chemistry or for each subject taught separately. Periodic table and materials list are appended. An index is also included.
