This week year 12 students are learning about how scientific discoveries have had an influence on art and world culture. Students used chemical reactions to make many of the most famous pigments responsible for great artworks and international land marks, for example they made the verditer green, used to colour the Statue of Liberty; Chrome yellow the iconic hue of the New York taxis and many more. They mixed the pigments with egg yolk to make egg tempera and then painted some Christmas themed masterpieces.
