Have you ever wondered how Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher made his surreal tessellations? Escher was not a mathematician, and was actually “math-phobic.” Yet he was challenged by a mathematical problem and worked alone to solve it. Join mathematician Doris Schattschneider in this hands-on workshop to explore how diligence and the invention of original patterns yielded both mathematical and artistic wonders. You will leave with a stronger knowledge of Escher, the math involved in creating tessellations and your own unique tessellation drawing. Reservations required. Professional development hours available for educators.
Members $50, Non-Members $55. Includes supplies and admission to M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion.
