Atoms Combine Art & Math for Radial Symmetry

Syracuse Academy of Science elementary student examines his handmade print design that highlights the art technique of radial symmetry.

Monday, May 17th, 2021Syracuse Academy of Science second grade Atoms combine two of their favorite subjects in a hands-on, minds-on printmaking activity. During this activity, students were able to explore radial symmetry, which is an art technique where you create a design that when turned looks the same from any angle. To create their designs, Atoms designed their own plate which they would then ink to make their original piece. From there, they would use that same plate to create multiple designs to add to their collection and portfolio. Keep up the great work, Atoms!
