Symmetry Grid Drawing Worksheets: Blend Art and Maths!
What is a Symmetry Grid Drawing? Here’s a quick rundown! A symmetry grid drawing is a type of drawing that is created by using a grid system to maintain symmetry in the image. The grid typically comprises a series of horizontal and vertical lines that intersect at regular intervals to form a series of squares or rectangles. In mathematics, the symmetry grid drawing is used to help students visualise lines of symmetry.
