Art and science integration -- my challenge to you

We need to put our creative minds together....Perhaps we can come up with
names for our programs that will get the skeleton into Janealla'a art room
(where she rightly deserves to be)?.....If home economics is now "Family and
Consumer Science" --- What can art be called to elevate it to its proper
place in the hierarchy of education? Some have already been named in time
"Archaeology" is a science and social science....and art --so that has been
used.

Scientific illustration/medical illustration are art careers. I had a
student who got a degree in medical illustration a number of years ago.

"How great thou art" might not work either...that might just put us too high
up on the hierarchy.....smile....but we can think that if we want.

OK....I hope someone has a good name out there. I have thought about this
before and just couldn't come up with a catchy one.
