combining art with biology

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

A friend and I, both with degrees in Biology, have started a life science class for 6 through 11 year olds.  We'll mainly be using REAL Science Odyssey.  We'll be learning about classification and the 5 kingdoms, with hands on labs.

One of the kids enrolled in the class has a mom who is an artist who does outreach at the local university.  She's offered to come add in some art to one of our classes.  Does anyone have specific suggestions as to how we could combine our life science with art?

Thanks.

I'd say some basic drawing skills - learning how to draw animals.  Adding art work to the kids labs.  Seeking out artists who use animals in their works.  How to incorporate nature into art - obviously moving beyond leaf press etc.

Also think what Frank Lloyd Wright was able to do, using nature in building.  A bit of thinking and the kids will be having a blast!
