Drawing Machine

As part of the STEAM ReFill program, young people at Miller invented their own drawing machines using found objects.



Young artists at Miller created these beautiful mandala artworks:


Spirographs combine art and maths. The patterns that they create depend on three variables: the radius of the fixed disc, the radius of the revolving disc, and the location of the pen on the moving disc. Today, students at Miller experimented with spirographs by creating as many different patterns as they could in a short period of time.



As part of the ReFill ‘STEAM’ program, students combined maths and art to create their very own mandalas. As part of this exercise, they explored symmetry, repeating patterns, and shape.
