Space as a New Frontier in Art

Who has not dreamed of going into space?  For this GUPPY art class we will visit the theme of the universe seen through space. We will do various art projects based around this theme, heading towards our ultimate goal of creating an interactive art scene combining all the different projects we do that chronicle our amazing space odyssey! Students will discuss artistic topics, see presentations relating to styles, mediums, and history, and finally participate in exercises getting them prepped to create an amazing final Mixed-Media product for each project. These activities will engage students and work on improving their artistic skills and gaining a better insight and understanding.  So get ready to blast off in this enriching art class!
