Tour Description

During this activity-filled tour, the galleries turn into math laboratories as students explore concepts of scale, ratio, perspective, pattern, symmetry and proportion in artwork. In addition to investigating how artists in the museum’s collection have utilized math concepts, students will meet with art instructors to create their own mathematically-inspired artwork. 

Borrow Art

Continue your museum experience back in the classroom with artifacts from the Lending Collection! Pre-packaged boxes of objects are available for some tours, or hand-pick objects from the collection for any tour. The Lending Collection is a free resource for Hawaii educators. Contact Dawn Sueoka at dsueoka@honolulumuseum.org to visit the collection or to reserve a pre-packaged box.
