Part 1: How to Draw Sacred Geometry: Understanding the Grid (9 Steps) 

The most important part of this lesson is understanding the basic grid that all of the primary sacred geometry symbols are drawn from. 

You will be surprised at how simple drawing sacred geometry art is after you see this grid. 

Start by drawing a vertical line through the middle of your canvas.

  • Using your compass, draw a circle with the origin at the midpoint.

  • Mark a point where the perimeter of the circle overlaps the vertical line.

how to draw sacred geometry: step 2

  • Start at this point and use your compass to mark 4 additional equal spaces points. 

  • Connect all 6 points to form a hexagon. 

how to draw sacred geometry: step 3

  • Divide each side of the hexagon into 3 segments

  • Draw a line from the top left & top right corners of the hexagon to the center & divide them into 3 segments. 

how to draw sacred geometry: step 5

  • Erase the lines outside of the circle and from the top point of the hexagon to the center.

  • Connect lines from each of the segments to form an isometric cube.

  • Connect vertical & diagonal lines through each of the points to finish the grid.

Part 2: How to Draw Sacred Geometry: Understanding how the 12  symbols interact with the grid. 

  • In this section you will learn how each of the Sacred Geometry shapes interact with the grid you created. 
  • Using this grid you can even freehand draw the shapes with accuracy. 

All of the basic sacred geometry shapes fit perfectly into the grid. See examples below: 

(Left) 64 tetrahedron grid, (middle) flower of life, (right) vesica piscis

(Left) germ of life, (middle) Metatron's cube, (right) vector equilibrium.

(left) seed of life, (middle) merkaba, (right) vector equilibrium.

(left) tree of life, (middle) fruit of life, (right) egg of life

Using these diagrams as reference, you can see how each shape directly corresponds to the points on the grid.
