Description:
Join the Walters' conservators, scientists, and educators to discover the many connections between science and art. Hands-on technical demonstrations will introduce participants to the examination techniques used by conservators and scientists that result in the care and treatment of works of art from the Walters' collection. The Walters’ conservation and technical research laboratory was one of the first in America and the Education Department team collaborates with conservation staff to offer resources and programs that integrate science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). STEAM resources and programs at the Walters introduce teachers and students to the role of conservation science in the museum setting and align with curriculum standards across multiple disciplines. STEAM programs include teacher workshops, high school STEAM days, and the conservation secrets outreach, studio, and tour. 

STEAM programming at the Walters Art Museum aligns with state initiatives and recommendations  aimed at integrating art skills and capacities with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education programs. A national congressional initiative has highlighted the value of the authentic integration of art and science education resulting in initiatives that reinforce interdisciplinary learning and the role of the arts in teaching 21st Century Skills. The integration of art and science learning highlights the parallels of artistic and scientific processes along with vital skills and capacities that support student growth and learning across all disciplines.
 
Participants will explore works of art in the galleries with conservators and discuss the conservation techniques and processes used to examine and treat museum objects. This hands-on tour highlights interdisciplinary connections between art and science. Applicable Grades: 6-12.
