About Academy of Nature and Wildlife Arts, Inc

​Art AND Science
Conserving Nature and Wildlife
The Academy creates opportunities to explore the art AND science of ecology in the same class. One can choose individual classes or participate in the certification program. Each class will provide information about the nature and wildlife included in the class to develop a meaningful expression of the information through the art projects in the class.

Historically, art and science were multiple methods to address the same big questions. They are two different ways of thinking about the same phenomenon. Both art and scientific inquiry were based upon recording observations of phenomenon with measurements and drawings. Think Da Vinci, John James Audubon, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, among many, many others.

John Maeda notes in Scientific America (2013) that (b)oth are dedicated to asking the big questions placed before us: “What is true? Why does it matter? How can we move society forward?” Both search deeply, and often wanderingly, for these answers. We know that the scientist’s laboratory and the artist’s studio are two of the last places reserved for open-ended inquiry, for failure to be a welcome part of the process, for learning to occur by a continuous feedback loop between thinking and doing.

Scientists are the ones who bring objective measurement to the creative thinking while, as Maeda notes, "Artists and designers are the ones who help bring humanity front and center, make us care, and create answers that resonate with our values."
