I have been doing some interdisciplinary teaching with the biology teacher
in our high school. Do any of you have any experience in that area? I am
particularly interested in activities that can combine...get
this...environmental issues (stream, field, and forest studies) with
secondary painting skills. I already have the obvious
connections...Scientific illustration (Audobon, Durer), abstracting from
nature (Dove, O'Keefe, etc.), murals, pigments from natural sources,
printmaking, 2-D design with nature as the subject matter...does anyone have
any other ideas? My students will be working with the science students, so
we are placing a lot of emphasis on observational skills, in their case for
identification purposes, in ours, for accurate drawing/painting.
