The Artistry of Water

The Artistry of Water is a free, cross-disciplinary resource that encourages students to think critically about the connections between the visual arts and science—specifically, the study of our most important natural resource: water. The educational resource profiles artist Gregory Burns, who has limited use of his legs after contracting polio and incorporates his experience with both disability and water into his works of art. Designed for grades 6–8, The Artistry of Water addresses United States national standards in science education and arts education.
