NanoArt 21 founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu is providing 3 images of nano or microstructures for children and teens to convert them into works of art through any artistic technique. The electron micrographs depict molecular and atomic structures (nanosculptures) of graphite micro and nanoparticles obtained by casting a slurry of colloidal graphite on glass in a very thin layer. After drying in air at room temperature, the layer was peeled-off the glass and fractured. The fracture surfaces of the structures were visualized with a Scanning Electron Microscope and captured in a computer. Click on the thumbnails to download the large images and save them in your computer if you would like to participate to this program. You can alter these images to create artworks for NanoArt K12.
All artworks will be posted on this site, and the best works will be selected to be shown in physical galleries worldwide. Please send one image per e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and include: Name, Grade, School, City, Country, Artwork Title, Final Image Size and Resolution, Artistic Process, Comments, Opinions, Ideas (here you can express your opinions in regards to the NanoArt K12 program, generate new ideas for NanoArt K12 promotion, competitions, shows, etc.). The web image file must be JPEG format at a resolution of 72 dpi with the longest dimension of maximum 800 pixels.
