Preservice elementary teachers, themselves taking a Mathematical Investigations class, completed a project whereby they created an artistic representation of a mathematics concept of their choice. An eclectic collection of produced works demonstrated various interpretations of the assignment. In this paper a very brief theoretical background for this work is provided as well as a sample of preservice elementary teachers' works with the accompanying reflections.
