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. Appendix, index. 2nd edition, 391 pages, 8½" × 11", soft cover.
