​I'm so glad these discussions are happening! Key idea mention is "Innovation = Art + Design," is too true. If you look at the most popular artists and architects of all time, they were also mathematicians and in general scientists. Most notably, Leonardo da Vinci made dozens of inventions. We must stop treating arts and science as separate entities when the marriage of the two is quite natural.

Geometry and art are very closely related. Art can make transformations (both rigid and non-rigid) tangible for different learning styles in geometry class.
