Here are a few of our favorites with a geometric theme.



Welcome to my Hive

Build a “honeycomb” that credits those who keep the community humming (art + social studies) (art + math) (art + science)


In a honey bee community, one can find a level of cooperation and collaborative teamwork that exists nowhere else on earth.



Students consider the people in their “hive” and design a “honeycomb” that credits those who keep the community humming.


Grade Level: 2 – 12



Inkless Tessellation Prints

(art + math)

A tessellation consists of one or more geometric shapes (called tiles) that repeat on a plane without overlapping or leaving negative space between repetitions.


Very simple tessellations would be the repeating hexagons found in a honeycomb or tiled flooring.


Grade Level: 5 – 12



Start with a Circle…

(art + math)

Geometric art kicks both the "left" and "right" sides of the brain into gear! Use gridded paper to arrange colorful, pre-cut tissue paper circles.


Beginning mathematicians create new colors, patterns, and shapes with circles, while more advanced students use smaller sectors to form a variety of angles, shapes and spatial relations.


Grade Level: K – 12



Decalcomania: Glue Paint Symmetry Prints

“Decalcomania” was a technique used by Surrealists to create impromptu paintings controlled largely by chance.


Much like a Rorschach inkblot test, they would search for hidden imagery and develop it into a finished painting. This tidy and highly interactive process uses glue paint in a finger painting-style of application — without actually touching it. Looking for hidden images and contour lines in the print will fuel the imagination of a young Surrealist!


Grade Level: K – 12



Rhythm in Layers

Low relief sculpture with design in mind. Layer by layer, piece by piece, this three-dimensional collage is assembled with repetitious shapes and elements, illustrating the principles of rhythm, balance, and movement.


Grade Level: 3 – 12
