This study investigated the effects of art and science integration on students that live within an urban community. The students used art concepts to enhance their observation skills. A variety of data were collected during this study; including pre and post assessments, surveys, interviews, observations, and student projects. The data were used to determine the effects on student awareness of their environment, comprehension, attitudes, and motivation. The educator's attitudes and motivation were studied as well. The study found an increase in the students' awareness of their environment, long-term memory skills, attitudes, and motivation. The study indicated mixed results of the educator's motivation and attitude.
