NASA's ART & THE COSMIC CONNECTION WORKSHOP
Eurekus co-founder Monica Aiello had a ball working with 4th graders at Altura Elementary. This one-day immersive workshop featured the Aiello's signature NASA program, Art & the Cosmic Connections. Learners investigated our solar system through art concepts. The Elements of Art - line, shape, color, value, texture - become "clues" to decipher the geologic stories on planets, moons and small bodies. Imaginations were charged and observational skills honed as learners and teachers engaged in an exciting pastel art activity inspired by the amazing images returned by NASA's robotic explorers.
