~Diatoms~
These are probably my favourite single-celled organisms to draw
These are silicified algae of small size, functionally, single celled. The siliceous cell wall encloses the organs of the cell and has ornamented and complex structures. Their wall is transparent thus allowing light to enter. The cell wall is also perforated which makes it possible for the diffusion and excretion of materials. Diatoms are abundant in nearly all habitats from freshwater to brackish water.

What do you see as the similarity between science and art? Why is science-art important in today’s society?

SciArt is a new era of science communication and should be incorporated early on in the education system. Through SciArt, we can impart scientific knowledge to non-experts in a field with ease.
