Art in Perspective: A Making Connections Cluster at Clarion University

Stephen I. Gendler and James Robert Rose
Bridges: Mathematical Connections in Art, Music, and Science (2002)
Pages 135–142


Prof. Steve Gendler and Prof Jim Rose taught a pairing of two courses in Clarion's Making Connections Program. The courses, an introductory studio course in art, and the mathematics course for liberal arts students were selected primarily by freshman art majors. They stressed the commonality between art and mathematics to inspire students who didn't like mathematics to want to learn more about it. Computer experiences and web-based assignments further enriched the experience.
