Online Program: Drawing – Reflections on Water

New Program Residency Workshop English French French Immersion

Have you ever looked at a water molecule under a microscope? There are six sides, just like a snowflake. In this drawing workshop, students will create a six-sided hexagon with a center pattern. Based on reflections from the micro to the macro cosmos, this pattern can be found in nature as seen in biology, geology, chemistry, physics and astronomy. Students will sketch drawings to learn more about water. They will be encouraged to complete their work at home after the workshop.
