This collaborative metallic balloons quote reads ‘Art is not what you see but what you make others see” and is a famous quote by Edgar Degas.

Students work in groups, with each student drawing a piece of the picture which combines to create a large artwork.  The lesson plan is full of useful advice.  This resource comes in both A4 pieces and letter-size pieces.  The metallic balloons are wonderful to draw and make an excellent drawing project or collaborative art club.

  • The 16 A4 pieces combine to make an A0 artwork.
  • The 16 letter-size pieces combine to make ANSI E size artwork.

This download includes:

  • A 16-page PDF of different pieces of the metallic balloons quote.
  • A lesson plan that includes: Preparation, introduction, demonstration, development, plenary, extension task.
  • A complete image of the metallic balloons quote to refer to.

There are more collaborative artworks on The Arty Teacher website that help develop teamwork skills.

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.
