Think Like a Scientist with Visual Art

This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.

In this workshop, learn how to view the scientific world through the eyes of an artist! Explore ways to help students read visual art to develop their use of several science practices, such as careful observation, analyzing and interpreting data, and developing an explanation based on evidence. The elements of art are used to effectively teach the skills of observing and describing so that scientific conclusions and explanations become even more detailed. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn an engaging process that takes you from STEM to STEAM! Continuing Education Units available.
