It’s Still Golden

My interest in the Golden Ratio continues to be such an enjoyable part of my teaching life. I am excited to present today, to teachers participating in the Alabama Institute for Education in the Arts’ professional development workshop for visual arts, some new findings about how M.C. Escher and Mondrian used this compositional principle in their work. We will also be forging new territory in a studio lesson related to the Fibonacci spiral. I can’t wait to see how these creative teachers integrate math and art in their art making and their teaching. Stay tuned for pictures!
