This middle or high school art lesson produces very cool reflective symmetry designs that resemble Totems. It is great as a first day of school or beginning of the year art project and it helps you remember students’ names. The designs are derived from student names The lesson includes a Google Slides presentation to show your students that includes step-by-step instructions with sample student work and video demonstrations, worksheets, teacher instructions, and sample fonts for inspiration.
The worksheets can be shared and completed digitally by students. Students are amazed when they think they are drawing a simple word in a cool font and then find out they created Totem faces with tons of personality. They realize they can create emotion and express aspects of themselves without literal imagery. This lesson can work for any level of art class. This is done on larger size paper but it can be modified and done on a smaller scale with any sized paper.
Need an Easy to Follow Art Sub Plan?
The included worksheets work great as sub plans, and early finisher assignments, for students on home instruction or in ISS. They are easy to follow with the linked videos and for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.
All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible.
