We investigated seventh-grade students’ visual-spatial thinking processes in an art studio in which students were engaged in observing minimalist artists’ artworks and creating their own artworks, as a possible connection between visual arts and mathematics education. The findings of the study shed light on further exploration of possible connections between visual arts and mathematics education and provide a theoretical basis for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) studies.
