Rainbow-colored works of art created by students at the Waldorf School of Princeton are on display at Small World Coffee, located on Witherspoon Street, now through February 4. The exhibit entitled, “Sacred Works of Geometry” is inspired by the students’ interdisciplinary arts curriculum. 

The colorful geometric pieces illustrate the connection between geometry, mathematics, and the humanities. Included in the show are several pieces based on the rose window concepts of the Renaissance and the mandala designs of various ancient cultures. The students used a variety of techniques to create these works including block printing, theories of shape and color balance, and even cross-stitching geometric patterns to create unique star patterns.

Through the arts, students at Waldorf are able to explore academic subjects that are not usually incorporated into such a curriculum. To learn more about “Sacred Works of Geometry,” visit www.princetonwaldorf.org.
