Colour My World Visual Arts E-Bulletin Nov-Dec 2020


Art and Science will come together

Become a better artist by blending art and science together. While the two disciplines have been traditionally kept separate, they are closely related in many ways. Just like arts, scientific breakthroughs require a great deal of creativity and just like Science, a function of the Arts is to investigate the world around us. 

What are light and colour made of and how are they related? Learn scientific research in the development of language. What is the driving force behind the motion of a moving sculpture? How does the passage of time affect the physical materials that we use?   

Embark on a quest to answer these questions and more in order to create more meaningful artworks.
