Mars Mission 2: Movement Marks

Today's Mars Mission is dedicated to Ashley for being so supportive of Mars Art Camp! Thank you! I hope Bash loves this kinesthetic activity.


In this mission, we use total body (gross-motor) movement to learn how to make the basic marks that makeup almost every picture. With these marks mastered, you can draw almost anything! Let's get moving!

You will need:

  • Paper or surface to make marks on (bigger the better)

  • Something to make marks with! Paint, pencil, marker, crayon, ANYTHING!

Instructions:

1. Follow along with the video below to make the following motions + corresponding marks on the page!

  • Jump up and down = line up and down (vertical)

  • Shake head no = lines side to side (horizontal)

  • Spin in a circle = circles/spirals

  • Wiggle Arms = wavy line

  • Form a zig-zag with arms/body = zig zag

2. Draw a picture using your new marks. It can be totally abstract and layered.

3. Extensions: come up with your own body movements and the marks that go with them!

Happy Creating,

Mars
