To The Moon and Back

 In Ocean Academy

By; Drennan Hayden/Art Teacher

We love Art to the moon and back! The recent eclipse served as great inspiration for our first project of the year.

In this lesson, we used a number of materials and techniques to achieve some wonderful results. Students illustrated with pencil, colored with pastels, cut and glued their subject and background, and finished the work off with a little paint. We learned about shading, contrast, volume and why these things help us develop strong pieces of art. There were some truly unique color combinations and compositions. Students had a great time and were engaged in the process. Great job to all those involved!

    The pictures that we drew was really amazing. And I really learned a lot about blending, blending pictures make the pictures really stand out. Everybody’s looks really amazing.

    Going to the moon must be fun, but I don’t know if I would really ever do that, something bad could happen like an asteroid could hit me. I enjoyed this project a lot.

    I did not do this activity, but it is amazing how such simple concepts can have such a great impact. It seemed like a cool project to take part in.

    I love the moon so much so I really missed out on this project. I am happy for those of you who didn’t miss it, I wouldn’t miss the next one for the “world”.
