Beautiful Numbers: Mathematical Art

Workshop Categories: Algorithms & Programming


Mathematics, Art and Computer Science come together in this unique workshop. Adapted from the original materials produced by Langley Grammar School; we look at the Fibonacci number sequence and the concept of the Golden Ratio and discuss how this has been applied to art and design throughout the ages.

So grab your pens and pencils for some mathematical puzzles that show you how great art is really all about the maths
