Shading a Sphere Worksheet – Middle School Art – Sub Plan – High School Project


Product Description

This is a classic exercise in shading and understanding light and shadow using value to create depth. Included is:

  • A worksheet on value and shading the sphere.
  • A video demonstration on how to shade the sphere using charcoal and graphite.

The video troubleshoots common student mistakes and demonstrates how to layer the graphite to build up value slowly and neatly. Parts are sped up so students can see the entire process unfold quickly. This value drawing exercise can precede any shading unit.


Need an Easy to Follow Art Sub Plan?

The included worksheets work great as sub plans, and early finisher assignments, for students on home instruction or in ISS. They are easy to follow with the linked videos and are easy for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.


All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible. You can find more ready-to-go, easy-to-follow, time-saving art lessons in my RESOURCE SHOP.
