The Assignment

The assignments in the Chemistry of Art course will require you to conduct interdisciplinary research. You will be encouraged to use databases across various disciplines as you discover and explore the topics of this class.  Ideally, your research in the chemistry and art fields will allow you to recognize the differences in the published research as you synthesize the literatures of both disciplines.
