The 38th Annual GNSI Conference will be at the University of California Santa Cruz July 3-9, 2016. If you like all things science and art, you don’t want to miss this conference.
The three-day core conference will be held July 3-6, 2016. Over the course of only a few days, there will be seven keynote addresses, 37 breakout sessions, an auction, a collaborative chalk mural party, the ever-popular and always inspiring portfolio sharing session and a techniques showcase where scientific illustrators generously share what they know with conference attendees.
Breakout sessions will address topics ranging from iPad use to science education outreach to 2D animation to nanoparticles to invasive plants to infographics to botanical illustration.
Several half-day and all-day workshops are scheduled for July 7-8. These focused workshops will address topics such as digital techniques, lab and field sketching, science comics, traditional media such as silverpoint, and the teaching of visual art in K-12 schools.
Optional field trips include whale watching, kayaking, hiking, wine tasting and visits to landmarks such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Henry Cowell State Park.
