Understand the science of light by making art

Is the science of light a bit shadowy to you? This book will help you to work like a scientist: testing ideas, making investigations and doing experiments. But you’ll also be an artist, using light and art techniques to bend light into a rainbow and decode mirror images – let there be light!

Science Makes Art skilfully blends science theory with fun art projects to encourage learning and creativity. It’s the perfect series to introduce key science principles and for cross-curricular and topic based learning.

Using materials from around the home, the art projects include:

– Shadow puppets

– Stained glass window

– Reflective collages

– Colour wheel

– Optical illusions

Ali Ardington (Illustrator)

Ali Ardington is a children’s book illustrator, designer and author from Oxfordshire. Her childhood was spent with either her nose in a book, or a pencil in hand creating funny monsters that could gobble up her twin brother. Her love for illustration and reading led her happily into children’s publishing and she now works on a wide range of books, from picture books to non-fiction and novelty. As busy as she is, juggling kids, spaniels and life, she still always finds time to doodle the odd monster eating brother, for old times’ sake.
