How do artists communicate concepts of science through the arts?

With its emphasis on S.T.E.A.M-based education, the Everhart Museum and AIE NEPA are proud to present The Science of Art, a brand new Artist in Residence program devoted to exploring how science connects with the arts.

During each session, students will work with a team of educators and rostered artists to create a work of art inspired by the Everhart Museum collection incorporating an element of science or technology based on a specific theme.

Session 3 Themes

K-2nd grade- Local and Vocal
In this session, students will discover the bird collection at the Everhart. During each class, participants will explore the idea of sound, the visualization of sound waves, how sound is used, and how it is made. At the culmination of the session, students will have the opportunity to create an interactive sound display to be installed at the Museum.

3rd-6th grade- Maps and Coordinates
Students will explore the concept of memory, science and art.  They will enhance their
observation skills by interpreting works of art.  Students will “observe” selected works from the museum’s permanent collection. These observations will be used to create their own mixed-media artist book.
