Life Science Art Integration
As we begin our unit on Animals and Their Environment, I thought it would be a good idea to include a couple of photographs and a skit. By incorporating these into our unit, we will help emphasize the importance of animal environments through visual art and performing art.
Visual Art (Photographs):
This photograph illustrates the importance of camouflage when choosing an environment in which to live. Animals need to blend in with their environment to survive in certain situations. The lines in this photograph, created by the tree bark, help to draw attention to the owl. The contrast in the photograph reveals the way nature creates the perfect canvas. The texture is made apparent by the bark and the feathers which add interest to the photograph. The contrasting effect made by the owl and the tree is amazing; the bark makes it feel rough while the feathers create a soft and smooth feeling. The focal point of the photograph is the owl, although one may not recognize it at first, due to its ability to camouflage.
The gecko in this photograph helps illustrate the importance of having food and water within your environment. If the environment an animal chooses does not provide adequate food or water sources, the animal will not survive. This photograph creates balance by using the leaves to develop a sense of stability. The emphasis of the photograph is capturing the gecko licking the plant. The negative area in the photograph appears blurred and out of focus, keeping the emphasis on the gecko. The vivid colors and texture help balance the photograph while the blue eyes become a focal point.
