3D SpheresWith this 3D Spheres art lesson, it is easy to teach that tone/values can give the illusion that a flat surface has form.  Included in this download is:

  • A worksheet with 4 blank spheres for students to work on.  There is a version that uses the word ‘Tone’ and a version that uses the word ‘Values’.
  • A good example of completed spheres that use pencil, coloured pencil, scumbling and ballpoint pen.  You can, of course, use whatever media you wish or even use different types of mark making.
  • A 3 slide presentation (pictured above).  On the final slide, the text is animated so you can talk students through where to place the different areas of light and dark.

3D Spheres is a great way to teach ‘form’ and ‘space’ if you are teaching the elements of art.

Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
