During this Spring Break Camp we created SPACE ART! Outer Space Portraits: Learned about foreshortening and how things close up are larger than objects further away. We used oil pastels, colored pencils and watercolor.
"Can you hear me major Tom?"
"Space Globe Trotters"
"Look Mom, I'm in Space"
Space Looms: Little Artists designed and carved space clay looms. After painting the clay looms the center was woven with colorful string to represent a sun, plant or moon.
Space Globes: The famous snow globe just got better! We created SPACE GLOBES! Little Artists sculpted Sculpey oven bake clay into astronauts, spaceships, and aliens which was adhered to the bottom of their globes lid. Then smaller floating planets, stars and even suns were added with the glitter.
Rockets were made in the construction area during free time.
We learned about Moon Rovers and how important their jobs are and created our very own to get the job done. We even added the EXTRAS!-Glow paint and snack packs.
Moon Rover Plan #1 Finds water and Rocks.
Moon Rover Plan #2 Uses satellites to find aliens and trap them under a basket for research.
Moon Rover Plan #3 Turbo Roller. Fast and smart.
Moon Rover Plan #4 Hunts for snacks and pick them up with the claw grabbers.
We added Christmas twinkle lights to the back of the canvas to make the stars, Little Tree sign, sun and spaceship light up.
See You at the Next Studio!
