IN-PERSON: The Elderwise classroom at the Vineyard Church
Join us as we explore some of the many ways in which artistic endeavor uses mathematical thinking, both formally and informally. These include the use of perspective, patterns in art, textiles, and architecture, the golden ratio in art and architecture, and the Fibonacci sequence in nature and art. No special knowledge of either math or art are needed in order to enjoy and learn from Joan Cohen Jones’ presentation. Expect a lively and fun class that may teach you to “see” differently. Joan Cohen Jones is a retired math teacher, professor of mathematics, and textbook author. In retirement she revisited a former passion, art, and is now an accomplished watercolorist whose works have been exhibited in several Ann Arbor venues.
