The aim of this course is to examine the role of geometry in the
visual arts. We will begin by discussing how definitions and axioms
are used in order to understand the axiomatic-deductive method of
reasoning, and work through a selection of Euclid's theorems. Once
we have a basic foundation in classical geometry we will investigate
the use of geometry in Renaissance art.
