Now offering this NEW one-time workshop in-person! An alchemist is a person who transforms or creates something through a seemingly magical process. Since the beginning of time, artists have investigated the ways in which substances interact, combine, and change to create amazing pieces of art. Join us as we experiment, hypothesize, and collaboratively create to build an art installation at CMA through the magic combination of chemistry and art together. Inspired by the chemical processes used in the artwork, "One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank" by Jeff Koons. Koons created an uncanny effect of perfect equilibrium by filling a basketball with distilled water and suspending it in a precisely combined solution of distilled water and pure salt. Throughout this workshop, students will learn more about this piece and have the opportunity to see it on display, create several chemistry and art creations, and pick one piece to display in the community art project!
