INST 2408 - Chemistry in Art

Hours: 4
An art project is a chemistry experiment in disguise: the molecular interactions of a dye on fabric and paint on a canvas are what allow these familiar artistic media to be employed.  The overlap between chemistry and art provides a fascinating area to explore in an interdisciplinary course.  In this INST course, which fulfills the Natural Foundations requirement, students will use exploratory art projects (such as making pigments and mixing paints) as frameworks in which to view molecular behaviors and chemical reactions.  Guest speakers will discuss related topics such as art conservation and forgery detection, as the class explores the underlying chemistry.
