Classroom Challenge

Taft Museum of Art invited Aiken New Tech students to explore the mathematical and science aspects of replicating dimension and optical effects from a painter’s perspective, using works created by historic Ohio artists. Students re-created historic painted panels, and presented their work at the Museum with Ohio legislators and STEAM educators in attendance.
