Abstract: Elliot Eisner (1933-2014), a pioneer in arts education, suggested that an artistic approach to education could improve its quality and lead to a new vision for teaching and learning. This is true for any subject, including mathematics. Geometry related topics make a perfect setting for a deeper contribution of art to education. One such topic is the study of non-Euclidean geometry. In this paper, we present some results of a professional development course for mathematics teachers where the participants studied non-Euclidean geometry concepts. The participants created ceramic pieces using the Poincaré disk and styrofoam balls covered with fabrics using spherical geometry.
