Color and You: A color mixing and matching activity
This workshop teaches about colors, how to make them, use them and their importance in the natural world. Through hands-on activities, participants will have the opportunity to expand their understanding of color theory in an interactive manner that encourages engagement. Starting with primary colors, plus black & white, students will develop a
color wheel. Once completed a “Color Challenge” is presented to the group. Breaking into teams, the task of finding the right combination of colors is a group effort to solve the challenge.

Intersection of Art and Science
Art and science both explore complex concepts. One of the fundamental challenges is how to express ideas to a wider community. In this workshop, participants explore in teams, both the arts and sciences of getting that idea across to the public. This will include imagery, radioactive symbols, cave drawings and how we as humans make common and uncommon associations with what we see. Participants will learn how the arts can actually wield a swift and nuanced way to communicate
these often difficult concepts.
