Dry Ice Bubble Painting!
This exercise teaches students simple chemical reactions (can explain molecular make up of dry ice and compare it to other gasses in the atmosphere). Taught by Boston based artist, Joe Kitsch.
Chunks of dry ice are dropped into water, soap added when ready. As the soap bubbles up, drops of food coloring are added to the foam. Students can let the bubbles pop on the paper, can layer colors, smoosh the foam creating a contrast of bubbles and blotches. Many pieces can be made by each attendee, which they can let dry and keep as is or draw and paint over them.
This event is in partnership with the Cambridge Science Festival! #BeCurious.
