Symmetry Drawing – Greek Vases and Patterns




Symmetry drawing worksheets that include Greek vases. These symmetry activity sheets are perfect for your ancient Greece study, math, and art lessons. The lessons include some warm-up drawing activities along with how to draw Greek vases. Symmetry also may fit into your math curriculum and is a fun way to teach kids about the line of symmetry (or reflection). Students will draw a Greek vase, add patterns to the Greek vase, and a symmetrical design in the middle of the vase.

In this lesson, students are given pages of Greek pattern ideas to use. I also have a lesson that will give students more practice drawing the Greek patterns and show them how the patterns are broken down into motifs. You can buy the two lessons as a bundle if you’d like to use them both.

  • Finish a symmetrical drawing with dotted lines as a guide.
  • Finish a symmetrical drawing with partial lines missing.
  • Finish a symmetrical drawing that is blank on one side.
  • Copy a symmetrical drawing on a blank symmetrical drawing sheet.

5 elements of shape:

  • Circles
  • Dots
  • Straight Lines
  • Curved Lines
  • Angled Lines

In this activity, students will use each of the “5 elements of shape” to finish the drawings to be symmetrical.

This lesson aligns with the book Drawing With Children by Mona Brookes. In her book, Mona Brookes teaches students to draw by using “5 elements of shape”. So if you are a homeschool parent using this book as part of your curriculum, this will fit right into your ancient history lessons.
