What's Included

This highly experimental class is all about the fun exploration of the billions of galaxies beyond our solar system - and creating stunningly beautiful space art through a variety of art mediums and surface creations. Images of galaxies can be truly breathtaking and mysterious, and will easily inspire students when making their own versions. Imagine glowing abstract nebula space clouds, sparkling star clusters and fluorescent spiral galaxies! Students in this special art class will experiment with different painting techniques, including air brush work, masking, sponging and splatter painting. Students will also explore different surface techniques that allow for a build-up of layers. We will work on wood, paper and larger-sized canvas using glow-in-the-dark and black light paints, alcohol paints, oil paints, watercolors and acrylics as the main mediums. To simulate the galaxies' kaleidoscope of colors and textures, layers and "building" mediums used will include oil primers, wax, tar-like and textured gel mediums, collage, alkyds, and enamels. Once the surface is created, students will then carve and score into it and create finished glittery planetary masterpieces! And of course, this exciting class wouldn't be complete without a cumulating blacklight art show. Be prepared to be dazzled!
