Spring 2012 not offered
This interdisciplinary lecture/laboratory course explores diverse science topics through the lens of the visual arts. Topics to be considered will include the physics of light; the neurobiology of color vision; the chemistry of pigments, binders, lakes, and paints; the mathematics of composition and design; and the psychology of perception, along with an overview of conservation science. In the laboratory component, students will perform a series of key experiments exploring basic knowledge in each of the various topic areas. Potential science majors and art majors will be given priority in forming the class. Having a secondary school chemistry course is advised.
