Mathematics and Art (3rd/4th grader)
In this class, we will look at different ways we can see Mathematics in Art. We will learn about geometric concepts and notice patterns, angles, and lines of perspective in art work already created and work to create our own art inspired by Mathematics. We will learn about different math concepts and explore a different artist each week and we will use various art materials and create a new project for each class.
