The North Carolina Museum of Art offers educators a series of mini-courses on the connections between art and science. Participants explore topics through inquiry-based learning in an online community while gaining valuable classroom connections.
• Explore topics through the lens of an artist and a scientist.
• Learn strategies for integrating art and science into your curriculum.
• Engage in K–8 professional development that is flexible and interactive.
Participants build skills in science and visual literacy as they explore ideas, ask questions, make observations, and experiment with a variety of art making. Course topics are as follows:
Art and the Science of Looking
Inquiry: Observation and Perception
Art and Systems
Earth Science: Part to Whole
Art and Physics
Physical Science: Force and Motion
Art and Ecology
Life Science: Ecosystems
Courses are aligned with the K–8 North Carolina Standard Course of Study for Visual Art and Science. They are open to educators of all disciplines and audiences. Each course can provide a certificate of participation for 2.5 hours, and up to 10 hours if all four courses are completed. (0.25–1.0 CEU, with approval from the local school system).
