Exploring Nature Through Art

Scientists frequently use photography, video, drawing, and even sculpture to help them explore and explain the natural world. In this program we’ll use a variety of techniques to observe and record natural phenomena and processes. From digital photography to pen and ink drawing, we will explore how art can improve our scientific understanding, and science can be used to create art.
