Egyptian Art
Write Like an Egyptian
The Ancient Egyptian language was written
down in two ways. The more well-known of the
two was a form of picture-writing called
Hieroglyphic script is a complex system of
more than 700 pictures. Many of the pictures
stand for an actual object or represent a
sound. There are only 24 hieroglyphs that
represent a single-letter sound. It is important
to note that in Ancient Egypt, there were no
hieroglyphs that represented vowels. The
vowel sounds associated with symbols were
introduced in the Nineteenth-century.
Hieroglyphs can be read from left-to-right or right-to-left depending on the way the pictures are
facing. The easiest way to tell is by looking at hieroglyphs such as people or birds: they always
face the beginning of the sentence. Sentences can be written from top-to-bottom as well!
For this assignment, you will do the following:
1. Select the hieroglyphs from the handout provided that represent the sounds that form
your name.
2. Create 2-3 sketches of your name where one sketch must be horizontal (read from rightto-left or left-to-right) and one must be vertical.
3. Using a sheet of manila paper you will then create a final drawing of your name in
4. You will then choose three analogous colours and colour in your hieroglyphic name
using any coloured medium you like (pastel, pencil-crayon, etc.).
