A three-day cCWCS miniworkshop
Friday: Morning arrival, afternoon activities
Saturday: Full day
Sunday: Morning activities, afternoon departure
Art is a great way to contextualize topics in chemistry when teaching an introductory course for non-science majors. During this two-day workshop participants will be shown the connection between chemistry and art by attending mini-lectures, performing laboratory experiments, reviewing the literature and discussing with faculty who have successfully implemented this approach in their own curriculum. The workshop lasts for 2 days, starting on a Friday afternoon and ending on Sunday at noon.
Friday afternoon: Participants will discuss the many properties of light and their applications in the art world, either during the making of art or its analysis.
Saturday: Natural and synthetic dyes and pigments and paint binders will be discussed. The working lunch will allow for a presentation of an overview of the literature.
