Biology Through Art
Knowledge-Values Courses: Natural Science in Context
This course covers the scientific method, and the basics of experiment design. This course integrates biology and art through the creation of artworks. Students view microorganisms, see examples of using DNA as an artistic medium, and see anatomy as art. The course culminates in students creating their own biological self-portrait. With biotechnology becoming a greater part of our daily lives, there seems to be a movement in the art world to integrate art and science.
