Hussain, Mahjabeen; Stoycheva, Dessy; Rule, Audrey C.; Tallakson, Denise A. – Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions, 2019
This experimental study was undertaken with preservice teachers to test whether the use of science integration into arts education increases demonstration of science details and creative features in artwork. Two conditions were created: arts-focused and science-focused; gouache still-life paintings were produced and analyzed, and an attitude…
