Art and science go hand in hand so we are putting the A in STEM to make STEAM. Sign your students up to explore how Art is related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts.

Choose from the following topics:

The Art & Science of Clay

View ceramics in the galleries and discover how ancient peoples used clay to create objects to offer protection and bring good luck. Then learn about the science of clay as you create your own clay artwork. NOTE: Finished work will be ready for pick up in 2-3 weeks.

The Art & Science of Color

Discover how artists use color to create different visual effects and explore how light enables color and shadow.

The Geometry of Art

Explore how artists use geometry to create art. In the studio create a sculpture, perspective drawing, or abstract collage.


Each program is available as a single visit to the FIA or a multi-part program, taking place in your school (limited to Genesee County schools) and in the FIA galleries and studios. One of our museum educators will work with you to plan the specifics of your program. In-school presentations are limited to schools in Genesee County.
