Art that cells
Feb. 18, 2019 | Form II students built models of cells in their Visual Arts class today.
Our boarding environment encourages teacher collaboration, which means students often bridge multiple disciplines in their classes. This morning in Mr. Brandon's art room, students used a variety of recycled materials to build models of plant and animal cells for their Science and Technology course. The designs incorporated styrofoam, cardboard, and clay to represent the different structures found in the cell. Sara even reused an abandoned art project made up of plastic bottles and modified it for her own cell mock-up. As if studying art and biology at once wasn't enough, the use of orange and green paint prompted a spontaneous history lesson when two students from Mexico and Italy both claimed that their country was the first to create a green, white, and red flag.
The epitome of multidisciplinary education!
