Semester Offered: every other spring only
Chemistry and Art studies the application of chemical principles to various aspects of the visual arts. Topics include elements, compounds, atomic structure, the periodic table, chemical bonding, chemical reactions, acids and bases, oxidation-reduction reactions, and polymers. These concepts are introduced where appropriate in the exploration of the chemistry of art media such as paints, dyes metals, glass, ceramics, plastics, paper, fibers, and photographic materials. Laboratory activities have been designed to complement and enhance the lecture topics. The instructional approach used in CHM109 is a combination of lecture, demonstrations, small group work, experiential exercises, and discussion. CHM109 fulfills the physical science requirement in the majority of programs and curricula.
