CEE 8823 Special topics course “ARTS & GEOMETRY”

Image preview

The syllabus is here: CEE8823_Arts_Geometry_Syllabus_FALL2022

A brief course description is given below. Send an email to Dr. Fedele  (fedele@gatech.edu) if you are interested in taking the course or if you have questions.


We will introduce students to the geometry of space and manifolds and how these concepts influenced modern arts and sciences, i.e. Cubism and Einstein’s relativity. The realization of geometry is visualization. The course is integrated with weekly lab sessions taught by the Atlanta-based professional artist Rachel Grant, who will teach students fundamentals of several art mediums:  pencil and charcoal drawing, oil painting, photography, three-dimensional (3D) sculptures and brainwave art using EEG technology.  Students will draw/sketch by hand to stimulate/enhance their visual memory, imagination, and practice abstraction of geometric concepts. Special focus is put on both exact representation (Renaissance art) and geometric abstraction (cubism, modern Art). Students’ artwork will be exhibited in the Georgia Tech Ferst Center of the Arts.
