Sip and Paint… Your Research Event

Emma N. Cook, ChemSciComm and GSC

Sip and Paint… Your Research was held to give graduate students and postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to illustrate their research through a canvas painting as well as promoting discussion of research between members of all disciplines within the UVA Chemistry Department. Science communication is a critical skill among scientists to effectively portray important information and research to other scientists as well as the general public. ChemSciComm and GSC partnered to host this event focused on promoting science communication for graduate students and postdocs in the department. During this event, attendees were able to use their creativity and artistic skills to describe their research to others (and drink wine, of course). The paintings are currently on display in the cases in the 2nd floor lobby area of the Chemistry building.
