Seeking the name


You need:


  1. drawing sheet 20 by 20 cm
  2. pencil
  3. colour pencils or markers
  4. black fine marker
With this project kids learn about radial design as well as symmetry.
First fold the paper so you have eight equal triangles. Then write your name in bubble letters inside one triangle. Be sure to touch the top and bottom of the triangle. Outline the name with a black marker. Go to the window and trace the name with pencil in the seven resting sections. Outline the names with black marker. Colour the letters and spaces between them. You can do this in different ways: the letters with colour markers and the negative spaces with colour pencils (see example below), or negative and positive spaces both with markers (see example above). When ready, you've made an incredible symmetrical design!
Seeing the name inside the drawing is very difficult ... you have to seek it!
