Symmetry With Cathy Hicks In Lower School Art At Maclay School

Think Cathy nailed this lesson on symmetry. She had students draw 1/2 of animal face.
What is Symmetry?
Symmetrical balance refers to balance that is achieved by arranging elements on either side of the center of a composition in an equally weighted manner. Symmetrical balance can be thought of as 50/50 balance or like a mirror image.
Supplies:
Reference sheets of animals
Marker (black)
9x12 white paper
Crayons
