Through Nov. 25: STEM to STEAM
UD art students' paintings on display in ISE Lab
3:38 p.m., Nov. 19, 2013--The focus on STEM science, technology, engineering and mathematics has temporarily become STEAM with the addition of art in an exhibit at the University of Delaware’s Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab).
Through Monday, Nov. 25, student paintings from Robert Straight’s two undergraduate Introduction to Painting classes will be on display in the building. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 4-5:30 p.m., and is free and open to the UD community.
Dec. 22: Creamery Claus
Dec. 24-Jan. 2: Holiday skating
The class explores beginning oil painting methods and material through both traditional and conceptual painting ideas, providing students with a foundation for discovering their unique potential for self-expression. The class includes both art and non-art majors.
With guidance from Straight, professor of art, students painted various items or concepts that are not normally seen by the human eye. Each painting depicts the student’s interpretation of the concept chosen and was painted on canvas using oil paints.
The paintings can be seen on the second, third and fourth floors of the academic wing of ISE Lab. Thursday’s reception will begin in front of the Problem-Based Learning Studio, Room 410, where the artists will be on hand to discuss and answer questions about their individual paintings.
