There is a fresh new energy in our country, and it is displayed in the arts in a profound way. Science, technology, engineering, and math intersect with and have found their true expression in the arts. Young artists are learning to manipulate line, shape, color, texture, and form with technology. They are being inspired by engineering to develop new ways to express creativity in a 3-dimensional world. Science has opened a whole new view of things with electron microscopes, magnetic-resonance imaging, and space telescopes. In addition, mathematics has revealed her secrets to good design through algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. Consequently, the stage has been set for some significant connections to be made with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and the arts that will lead to the growth and enhancement of 21st Century thinking skills. As an art form, quilting promotes stillness and deep thought, concentration, and fine motor skills, and demonstrates mathematical principles in a tactile way – growing the mind and enlivening the heart. Taking on the quilting arts is enhancing creative thinking, mindfulness, and cognitive development. That is how young artists can make the world a better place by using math as a way to transform minds and transform the world.
