Learn about the intersection of math and art through the work of Helen Hardin, who combined her architectural training with traditional designs found on petroglyphs and ancient potsherds from Santa Clara Pueblo. Hardin is the focus of the exhibition, Spirit Lines: Helen Hardin Etchings, which also features works by her mother, Pablita Velarde, and daughter, Margarete Bagshaw.

After an introduction to the artists and their work, examine the connection between mathematical thinking and artistic habits of mind. Participants will then work in small groups to explore arts-integrated resources, then experience one lesson they can take back to their students the very next day. Content presented will treat participants as educators and learners, and is applicable in virtual, in-person, or hybrid environments.

Presented by Sabrina Garcia, creative and educator in Sacramento City Unified School District, and Mallorie Marsh, Associate Director of Education at the Crocker Art Museum. Registration closes April 19.
