3. Science+Art Exhibit: A Drop of Water

4-5. Gently Down the Stream and Cut and Paste a Scrapfish:
The next two videos below, Gently Down the Stream and Cut and Paste a Scrapfish were created by the artist to accompany the Apalachicola Museum of Art exhibition. A collaborative project, musician Jody Thomas, composed and performed all the background tracks selected for the production.
Cut and Paste a Scrapfish, (below) was was created by the artist to be used as a motivational teaching aid shared with local pre-school aged children during her exhibition at the Apalachicola Museum of Art. Children of all ages visited the Museum during the exhibition; classroom art projects soon followed. Nora stars as her grandfather, musician Jody Thomas, composes and performs his music in this production designed specifically to inspire small children.
