See the event schedule below for dates and times.
Explore the colors of nature through art and science! Learn about why flowers have the colors they do, how bees see, and make original art using chemistry and optics. This lab is an art studio where microscopes and paintbrushes work side by side as we investigate and create a colorful world. Participants will draw, create an animation, observe birds and insects, explore UV light, mess around with pigments, and use scientific tools such as microscopes. They will learn about foundational approaches in art and science, as well as how color is produced in objects such as feathers and butterfly wings. For students entering grades 5-7.
