FARMINGTON — Seven students in Patti Millette’s Earth Science class at Mt. Blue High School currently have their work on display at the Portland Museum of Art as part of a Science/Art crossover program that will be exhibited throughout the month of April.

The program is a joint effort with the Museum and Maine science and art teachers. Teachers participated in a summer workshop at the Museum and the Winslow Homer Studio at Prout’s Neck. The goal is to highlight the similarities between the two fields and show how each field may be used to enhance the other.

Millette was one of the teachers who attended the program last summer. She used the experience to encourage her students to apply their art skills to enhance their scientific inquiry skills.

The Portland display includes rock sample drawings and paintings by Samantha Ellis, Audrey Keith, Kameron Keoskie, Julianna Labul, Hannah Minns, Sarah Rogers, and William Salisbury. Also included is a description of each rock’s origin based on the interpretation of evidence the students documented in their drawings.
