When you ask young people to look closely, THEY DO.

This week I was thrilled to work with over 120 sixth grade biology students, guiding them through the steps of creating unique scientific artwork. Looking at detailed photographs of magnified cells, they observed and discussed what they saw. With an experimental attitude, they then mixed focus, control, and accuracy, with flowing, spreading color… the last step, a sprinkle of sea salt. Here are just a few of the stunning results! Enjoy.

This experience was made possible by Arts Program coordination and funded by the Oak Grove School District’s Education Foundation.
