Science and Art


SCIENCE AND ART INTERPRETIVE RESOURCE

“The most important quality of art and science is curiosity”
- Fabian Oefner, Artist and Photographer

Art and science underscore the importance of critical thought and experimentation and, at times, bring to the fore ethical and cultural issues.

Investigate the connections between Science and Art by exploring a diversity of works in the Art Gallery's collection.

The activities suggested in this resource link with the Australian Curriculum: Arts (Visual Arts) and through the strands of Responding and Making, provide opportunities for students to experience and explore the concepts of artists, works of art, world and audience. These can be used as a starting point to consider a range of perspectives within the context of social, cultural and historical viewpoints.
