Description: In order to understand the properties of matter, scientists have to observe, ask questions based on their observations, and measure them in a variety of ways. In order to make art, artists do similar things. In this tour, students will explore the properties of matter and ask why artists would want to use specific materials, or alter the state from a solid to a liquid, to achieve their desired result.
