Artsy Math**
Gr 3-4 or 5-6
Do you enjoy art? Do you enjoy math? This class is designed for both! Students will create using math concepts like symmetry, tessellation, geometry and measurement. No artistic skill necessary—if your can measure color, and draw a straight line (maybe with a ruler) - you can create art and learn about math.
