Radial Design and Coloring Book

Eighth grade Geometry students created designs in the style of artist Kristin Farr to demonstrate their mastery of identifying point symmetry and line symmetry (G.3c). Students compiled each of their designs into a coloring book to share with art therapy organizations, other students and teachers at their school, and the community at-large. Plans for distribution are ongoing.
