During this activity-filled tour, the galleries turn into math laboratories as the students use art to explore concepts of scale, ratio, perspective, pattern, symmetry and proportion. Students will discover how artists use math concepts such as perspective, patterns, proportion, and ratio to create art. Following the tour, students will meet with art instructors and be led through a mathematics-related art project.
