Our sister site NRICH is celebrating the connections between maths and art with a special issue containing hands-on activities, challenges and articles to get your creative juices flowing. We particularly like the painting by functions challenge, which invites you to imitate computer graphic artists by representing your favourite image using mathematical shapes and functions.

But there's lots of other stuff too, from celtic knots to origami. There are activities for all age and ability ranges — why not have a look?
