Creative Geometry Salon: Vedic Squares

The Vedic Square is a variation on a typical 9×9 multiplication table which is a source of many Islamic patterns and symmetric art patterns. We will be drawing patterns based on magic squares from the Vedic Tradition, which John Lloyd learnt from Pieter Weltevrede and Mavis Gewant.
Creative Geometry Salon meets monthly to explore the intersection of Art and Geometry. Topics have included Islamic and Cosmatesque Design, Projective Geometry, Classical Constructions, Form Drawing, and more. Our main presenters are Steve Pomerantz, John Lloyd, and Steve Bass. We rotate facilitators to lead discussions and drawing through a range of examples drawn from history.Accessible to people with all levels of drawing experience.
Bring your imagination… and a ruler, compass, paper, pencils. Additional materials that could be useful include: colored pencils, watercolors, and some paper at least 8 1/2” x 11”. We will have some extra supplies for people who need them.We will be meeting in a beautiful sunny room generously provided by Anthroposophy NYC. (We are requesting a $5 contribution from everyone to cover the use of the space.)
