Art & Science

DIY Kaleidoscopes!

Creative World Art School

Students in Ms. Rosaline's class learned about the physics of mirrors and reflected light  while making their own kaleidoscopes!

Students used three mirrors set at equal angles and then filled one end with beads, sequins and glitter. Then they decorated the outside of their one of a kind kaleidoscope!

Pendulum Painting

Creative World Art School

First graders in the Art & Science class explored the concept of physics through the pendulum painting project. Paint bottles are suspended over the paper and tarp and they create wonderful geometic designs as they move about.

Red Cabbage pH Test

Creative World Art School

Ms. Rosie's Botany and Food class used cabbage juice to test pH levels in different liquids! Students were able to see the different ways in which liquids responded to cabbage juice (which operates as a pH indicator). Red/pink reveals that a substance is acidic while blue/green reveals that the substance is a base.

The students had a great time seeing colors change before their eyes! They even got a creative with the colors and made some fun pH test drawings!


Glimpse of Physics

Creative World Art School

The word Physics comes from the Greek word phusikḗ "knowledge of nature." One of the oldest practiced sciences, physics helps explain how matter, energy and movement operate. At CW our aim is to introduce this subject in a fun and engaging way to our students!

BALANCE: Student's in Ms. Rosie's K-2 Physics class explored the concept of balance. By creating a project where they get to see, feel, and control the effects of balance they are able to better grasp the idea. 

Ms. Rosie used hangars to create the base structure and instructed students to use the appropriate amount of clay on each base and the top to create the balance. Students then discovered that when they carefully constructed their pieces they were able to balance them on just one finger.

HEAT: Ms. Rosie's class then had a chance to explore how density of air molecules becomes lighter when they are activated by heat. She had students create a lovely balloon together that was then heated on the inside by teachers. Unfortunately, it was a windy day in Arcadia, and combined with the weight of the decorations the balloon did not fly off. It did propel itself up while the teachers held onto it.

This project gave the class an opportunity to work together on a project while learning that hot air rises against cooler air. In our classes that incorporate art and science students learn that there isn't a hard distinction between the two subjects and when combined creativity abounds!
