Painting with Bacteria – Agar Art Workshop with BUGSS, Baltimore Underground Science Space

January 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST


Agar Art is a perfect marriage of biology and art that everyone and anyone can get into. Living masterpieces are created by painting different microbes onto an agar agar filled petri dish. Unlike other media, the picture needs a few days to grow. The folks at Baltimore Underground Science Space will lead the workshop, bringing a special collection of microbes that produce an array of beautiful and striking colors. New to agar art? Check out the Bacterial Art and Yeast Art sites for some inspiration and a hefty dose of awe. Perhaps your artwork has what it takes to enter the annual national ASM contest and win!? For full contest details (including Terms and Conditions) and examples of previous winners, see the Agar Art Website.
AGES 14 and up.
CANCELLATIONS with full refund available more than 7 days prior to the start of the class. No other refunds are available.
