Nature Connection: Art and Science 

MACAA Affiliate Session at SECAC

Barbara Giorgio-Booher, Session Chair

Amidst the challenges and unpredictability of the past year, there has been a return to the outdoors with artists taking refuge in the natural world. Being in nature alone can help to reduce stress and build resilience. Artists historically have had a fascination with the natural world. This session seeks creative endeavors or assignments that focus upon nature or environmental issues that are the basis for developing an art narrative that introduces observation, experience and reflection. We hope to highlight ways to help students learn to wander and explore, recording in words and sketches, while looking for patterns or textures. What are some creative ways that we can engage students in making a connection between art and science?

Open to all disciplines. Presenters do not need to be members of MACAA.

Please email Barbara Giorgio-Booher at to submit a paper for this panel.
