Join us at Ohlone College as we explore the world of agar art. At our workshop you will have the chance to use special microbes that produce an array of beautiful colors to create a living artwork in a petri dish. We provide the tools, and you provide the inspiration! What kind of microbial masterpiece will you create?

Ohlone College is offering this workshop in partnership with the American Society for Microbiology. By taking part in this event, you will be eligible to submit a photograph of your artwork to the 2019 ASM Agar Art Contest; see details at
