Creator: Cady, Dona

Description: Created by Joanna DelMonaco and Dona Cady at Middlesex Community College, this resource presents the basics of ratio and proportion as they relate to the visual arts during the Classical, Renaissance, and Modern periods. This Humanities introductory course includes diagrams, lessons, and assignments in PDF format to help solidify the basic understanding of the Golden Ratio. This would be a great resource for educators to introduce mathematical skills used within the visual arts spectrum.
