This interactive workshop is designed for the participants to explore connections between math and art that would be accessible for the diverse population of K-3 students. Participants will create their own math inspired artwork, share and discuss resources, and create a collaborative art piece. Teachers will explore how students can connect numeracy, patterns and spatial reasoning through visual art throughout the year to reinforce mathematical concepts from K-3 Alberta Program of Studies. Participants will walk away with an understanding of different art techniques and materials that are appropriate for early learners and ideas for future math art projects.
