Linking Math with Art
Through the Elements of Design

Geometric People



Art Element: shape
Art Techniques: collage
Math Vocabulary & Concepts: shape words; proportion

Students use only geometric shapes to create a human figure, leaving spaces between the shapes. The samples here were done by second grade students, With older students, I have them research average human body proportions before doing the activity. Sometimes I assign values to different shapes and have students calculate the 'worth' of their figure.
