We first learned about asymmetry with Pablo Picasso.
We compared the difference between symmetrical faces and Picasso's paintings of faces.
They learned that Picasso liked to show different sides of the face all at once so each student needed to have a front facing eye and a profile (side) view of the face.
Their clay is white so color their clay with markers and then mold the clay until it changes color.
We looked at Rose Windows - A circular window that has radial symmetry
We traced out a circle that was separated into 8 equal sections.
Then we cut out 1 paper triangle and created designs (shapes, lines or letters) on that 1 triangle.
We took the triangle, stuck it underneath the projector sheet, taped and lined it up with one of the sections on the projector sheet.
They colored in their designs and then outlined them in black.
