NanoArt K12 Online Exhibition
Students bellow the age of 18 are encouraged to participate to the NanoArt K12program launched by NanoArt 21 in collaboration with The Nanotechnology Group
The purpose of this worldwide program is to support the education of the new generations of artists and scientists and to promote the art-science-technology intersections, NanoArt, and Nanotechnology for a better youth development. Before you start your NanoArt project, we suggest you download the Nanoscience Interactive Learning Module for NanoArt K12 Program prepared by Judith LightFeather, founder of The Nanotechnology Group. You will find plenty of nano-related information by following the links.
Also, you could click on these links to read about Nanotechnology and NanoArt. And if you would like to have more fun while you are learning about nanotechnology click on the link to play the game NanoQuest.
NanoArt 21 founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu is providing 3 images of nano or microstructures for children and teens to convert them into works of art through any artistic technique. The electron micrographs depict molecular and atomic structures (nanosculptures) of graphite micro and nanoparticles obtained by casting a slurry of colloidal graphite on glass in a very thin layer. After drying in air at room temperature, the layer was peeled-off the glass and fractured. The fracture surfaces of the structures were visualized with a Scanning Electron Microscope and captured in a computer. Click on the thumbnails to download the large images and save them in your computer if you would like to participate to this program. You can alter these images to create artworks for NanoArt K12.
All artworks will be posted on this site, and the best works will be selected to be shown in physical galleries worldwide. Please send one image per e-mail. Each image should be sent with an entry form. The entry form ( click here to download the file in PDF format or here to download the file in Word format ), and the image file for web presentation should be sent by e-mail to email@example.com. The web image file must be JPEG or GIF format at a resolution of 72 dpi with the longer dimension of maximum 800 pixels.
Copyright of entered artworks remains with the student-artist who agrees to grant permission to nanoart21.org to use the submitted material in exhibits on the nanoart21.org web site and other media for marketing and printing for off line marketing. You must accept that all entries are archived and displayed online. Your permission to display the entry for the competition and later in the archives cannot be reversed and its use or removal is entirely at the discretion of nanoart21.org.
