    Teaching the Worlds of M.C. Escher: Creative Teaching Program for Art and Math Instructors
    Join this COMICS WORKSHOP for a survey of the Currier’s Escher exhibition, with accessible cartoon-based activities and flexible assessment tools to help your students investigate Escher’s imaginary universes of pattern and logic, and explain what they find! We’ll use Escher’s artwork and techniques to explore tessellation, symmetry, pattern, geometrical properties of space and more, with a close look into how his eye-catching “mental images” challenge our intuition and imagination and stimulate discussion in the classroom. Workshop includes a survey of related comics- and art-based mathematical resources and approaches developed in Marek’s ongoing MathematiComics series..
