Your Amazing Teeth

18 March 2015

Student: Carmen
Medium: Painting

Carmen explains the creative side: 
I painted a diagram of the inside of a tooth. I decided to sponge on some pastel colours, grey, black, and an extremely dark purple. It’s supposed to stand for the positive and negative traits of teeth. I used skewers to drag the paint out and used toothpicks from home for the thinner vessels and etc.

Carmen explains the scientific side: 
Teeth are part of two organ systems, the digestive system and the skeletal system.


The Creative Science initiative takes place as a partnership between the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Vancouver area High Schools. The initiative challenges students to create an artistic product illustrating concepts associated with their biology curriculum.
