tessellation

Exploring Tessellations in Math, Geometry and Art

Students work with George Woideck to analyse geometric tessellations and then appy their knowledge to making tesssellations in the visually delightful style of artist M. C. Escher.

These workshops were created using the thechniques of combining Art with at least one other curriculum subject that I learned as a fellow in a Kennedy Center (Washington DC) arts-in-education intiative. They are also available in Professional Development Workshop forms. In Northeast Ohio, my school programs are scheduled through the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning, a non-profit organization dedicated to integrating arts, artists and education. Visit their web site at Arts-Inspired Learning. org or reach them by phone at 216-561-5005 to learn more about bringing me to your school.
