Second and third graders revisited the concept of symmetry with their symmetrical tinfoil art creations. We started with a discussion of what symmetrical and asymmetrical means. Students used a 4x6 paper folded length-wise or width-wise to draw half a design. Then using the window for light they traced the other half of their design to create a symmetrical drawing. Their fold line acted as the line of symmetry. Students then glued that paper to cardboard where their design was traced with a hot glue gun. The following week classes had a discussion about what space means in art and students covered their hot glue patterns with tinfoil. They were told they had to fill the entire space of their tinfoil art, positive and negative, with colored sharpies. Their final creations showcase the elements of symmetry, line, texture and space all in one!
