Symmetrical Name Designs

International Academy students used the letters of their names to create these symmetrical designs. We began by drawing out the letters of our names on a small triangle. I showed the students different types of fonts and let them choose the type of lettering and layout, however I did require that some letters go off the edges. These were then transferred onto a 12 x 12 inch paper and flipped to create the symmetrical balance. Once the transfer was complete, students used colored pencils to fill in all the spaces with three analogous colors. The artworks turned into a really interesting and intricate abstract design!
