Some really wonderful connections are being made in art class concerning concepts students are learning in math. Fourth graders were pretty excited to see artist Wassily Kandinsky used concentric circles and geometric shapes in his paintings. Fifth graders have been using symmetry when designing their mummys. The ipad classes have discovered radial symmetry with their kaleidoscope app and mirror imaging with their drawing app.
Coming up 4th grade will be creating their mirror image (what we call positive and negative space) pumpkins and a concentric circle tree. 6th Graders are drawing cubes by learning right angles and parallel lines.
