GOMES, Tiago Carneiro; GIORGI, Cristiano Amaral Garboggini Di and RABONI, Paulo César de Almeida. Physics and painting: dimensions of a relation and its potential for teaching physics. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.4, pp. 4314-4314. ISSN 1806-1117. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1806-11172011000400014.
This article discusses possible uses of the relations between physics and painting in high school. Based on the official proposals for education, which already incorporate the need to revise the usual approach of physics concepts, and proposals of other authors who claim the need to give other meanings to physical concepts, we show how the development of physics and painting indicate rapprochements, and how they can contribute to the understanding of concepts of physics and other disciplines as well as for understanding the reality in its broadest sense.
Keywords : physics; painting; physics teaching; art; high school.
