NanoART K12 program promotes the art-science-technology intersection
(Nanowerk News) Students bellow the age of 18 are encouraged to participate to the NanoArt K12 program launched by NanoArt21 in collaboration with The Nanotechnology Group.
The purpose of this worldwide program is to support the education of the new generations of artists and scientists and to promote the art-science-technology intersections and NanoArt for a better youth development.
nanoart21.org founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu (www.crisorfescu.com) is providing 3 images of nano or microstructures for children and teens to convert them into works of art through any artistic technique. The electron micrographs depict graphite micro and nanoparticles.
All artworks will be posted on this site, and the best works will be selected to be shown in physical galleries worldwide. Please send one image per e-mail. Each image should be sent with an entry form. The entry form and the image file for web presentation should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The web image file must be JPEG at a resolution of 72 dpi with the longer dimension of maximum 800 pixels.
Copyright of entered artworks remains with the student-artist who agrees to grant permission to nanoart21.org to use the submitted material in exhibits on the nanoart21.org web site and other media for marketing and printing for off line marketing. You must accept that all entries are archived and displayed online. Your permission to display the entry for the competition and later in the archives cannot be reversed and its use or removal is entirely at the discretion of nanoart21.org.
