Our Trips

Thursdays | October 19, 2023-June 20, 2024

Discover the interwoven worlds of math and art. Using tessellations as a foundation, each workshop explores the pattern making and mathematical elements of design work. Workshops examine the work of Dylan Thomas, a Coast Salish contemporary artist, and how he has connected math and geometry to his art practice.
