Big Blue Marble

Do you remember the television show, The Big Blue Marble? It was the inspiration behind today’s art project!

First we watched the opening song for the show.

We talked about the importance of variety and diversity in our lives and how that concept also applies to art.

Then, the creative process began! Students started with a variety of blank circles.

 

 

 

 

 

The students selected colours and mixed them with white to create different values within each circle.  They also created one circle to represent the Earth.

The next step was to use 3 chalk lines to create a zoomed in view of the inside of a box. A little shading helped to create the illusion.

Lastly, students placed their “marbles” in the box.

Here is the Success Criteria the students worked with:

The final products turned out amazing!
