Saint Louis University's Prison Program is an educational program for both inmates and staff.

Math and the Art of Escher is one of the courses offered and the work shown on this page represents the mathematical artwork produced during the nine week course.

Rosette and Border Patterns

The Rosette patterns are finite motifs classified by the reflections they may or may not have and the order of the rotation. The rosettes created varied from the abstract to more representational. The students turned in sketches to show the design process and wrote a paper explaining the mathematics used to create the design.

Tessellations

Quackers a Metamorphosos based print by J. Wooldridge

The tessellations varied from interesting designs that show a theme such as Love over Hate by C. Riley, to a design that reminds one of the Metamorphosis prints by Escher, to tessellations based on recognizable figures.
