Integrate two unlikely subjects-chemistry and art-with this book of over 60 hands-on activities and fascinating demonstrations. Students learn fundamental principles of both subjects through exploration of color and light; paint and pigments; clay, sculpture and organic chemistry; jewelry, metalworking and electroplating; photography; art conservation and forgery! Each of the 10 chapters acts as a stand-alone unit and contains extensive introductory background material, objectives for the lab or demonstration, materials, procedures, and questions. So much chemistry can be learned when it is associated with art-and the learning process will be meaningful, painless, and certainly fun! Suitable for both chemistry and art classes for grades 7-12.
