Graduate and Undergraduate Courses
Visual Science Workshop - School of Visual Arts (HSD-3507)
September 5, 2013 - December 18, 2013
This course will explore the science of the tools that visual artists use. While bringing to light the methods scientists employ to see their theories come to life, we will study such topics as the photoelectric effect, microscopy, chemistry of color, biology of vision and the growing dependence of visual techniques on computer science. Activities will include performing experiments in class and with the staff at the American Museum of Natural History.
Note: Priority registration will be given to students in the Honors Program. All other students may register with permission of the instructor.
Course meets at SVA and at AMNH on Thursdays (3:30-5:30pm).
