Class Description: 
Saturday, May 18
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

All levels. Leonardo da Vinci said, “Study the science of art. Study the art of science.” From Ernst Haeckel’s early lithographs of new species to Maria Sibylla Merian’s illustrative documentation of metamorphosis, the convergence of science and art has never been more apparent. This course will begin with a brief history about some of the many inspiring artists who were also scientists. You will explore the bridge between art and science through a cumulative approach, learning about the chemistry behind various media and then mixing your very own pigments, learning the methodology behind keying out a species and developing a vision to bring your species to life, all the while creating several art pieces along the way. A final project and critique will round out the course. Designed for adults only.

Registration ends May 13 at 3 p.m.
