Students will become immersed in the beautiful and mathematical world of shapes by exploring an art gallery, completing various shape challenges, and creating their own shape artwork.
Explore shapes found in nature and in the human-designed world, specifically in art. Through a series of explorations, make mathematical and artistic connections to how shapes can be used in telling stories, leading to creating personal shape artwork.
Art + Math Connections:
Fine Arts Standards – Visual Arts Anchor 1: Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work
Common Core Math Content – Geometry: Reason with shapes and their attributes
