Sky Tree SKY TREE: SEEING SCIENCE THROUGH ART

Thomas Locker
Candace Christiansen

Artist and Science Teacher collabarate to create a visual science lesson illustrating the relationship between art and science.

A tree on a hill is painted as the sky changes through sun, wind, snow, mist, ice and the seasons.

This visiual cycle of the tree and it's relationship with the sky prompt questions of the reader about their feelings.

Beautiful and very well done.
