First Grade Woven Symmetry Art
First graders are learning about the elements or art- TEXTURE and BALANCE. They created these woven designs using pipe cleaner for the warp (vertical pieces) and streamers and ribbons for the weft (horizontal pieces) using the over under pattern.
The frames were made with an emphasis on bilateral symmetry. Students cut their design from folded paper revealing identical sides when opened, and then carefully added the same markings to each side of the center to create SYMMETRY.
