Project Description

In this interdisciplinary art program students will be introduced to both Oregon’s unique geologic history as well as simple color theory. Each student artist will paint a color wheel and then learn about common and important color schemes used in fine art. Then through story telling and imagery students will learn and discuss some of Oregon’s geologic gems including the formation of the Willamette Valley, Crater Lake and our beautiful Cascade Volcanoes. At the end of this residency, students will be able to draw and design a scientifically informed, cross-sectional diagram of a volcano using color theory as a guide.
