Art of Collaboration

Kristen Hensley has partnered with her mentor, Jill Taylor at the North Carolina Museum of Art, to design lessons that integrate science with the arts. Ms. Hensley’s lessons use popular works of art to teach science concepts that are directly tied to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. These lessons serve to engage students by capitalizing on their interest in the arts thus leading them to a deeper understanding of science through unique media.
