We explored symmetry and balance in art by observing the patterns in butterflies.
After examining how the balance and symmetry was achieved, the students worked in creating their own symmetrical butterflies.
The project had four steps. Step one: We used pencils to draw our butterflies. Step two: We made an effort to draw the same images in both sides. Step three: We use black sharpies over our pencil lines. Step four: We used markers and water colors to complete our composition.
