Great Collaborations: Science + Art

Illuminated Manuscripts

During the 2013 spring semester, Politi Elementary students took on the theme of great collaborations between science and art. We virtually explored the libraries of medieval Europe to find illuminated manuscripts. Students learned that every book used to be copied by hand, making each one a great treasure. Student then studied calligraphy and graphic design in order to create their own illuminated manuscripts about California wildlife, using parchment, calligraphy pens, and colored pencils.
