Math and art

Students from Agnew H. Johnston, C.D. Howe and Hyde Park elementary schools in Thunder Bay used math to help them create abstract art.

They had to consider adding more paint, subtracting colour or measuring the distance between objects to get the right proportions.

The lessons were provided through a partnership between Lakehead Public School's teachers and artists from the Royal Conservatory's program Learning Through the Arts.

Nicole Walter Rowan is with the Public School board.
Crystal Nielsen is the northern ontario manager for Learning Through the Arts.
