NASA'S ART & THE COSMIC CONNECTION
Art & The Cosmic Connection is a robust NASA curriculum co-authored by our founders, Tyler & Monica Aiello. Developed For NASA's Discovery & New Frontiers Programs in association with McREL International, A&CC has been presented to thousands of students and teachers internationally with outstanding reviews. A&CC teaches students of all ages how to understand the many cool images returned by NASA missions to the mysterious planets, moons, and small bodies of our solar system. Students learn to decipher the complex geologic stories present on these worlds using the Elements of Art - line, shape, color, value and texture. Students engage in creative and fun art projects (pastel, collage, ceramic tiles, etc.) to reinforce concepts while honing observation skills and inspiring inquiry. Art & the Cosmic Connection offers a terrific bridge between Earth & Space science, as well as a wonderful dive into the potential of science to inspire art - and art to empower science. Many useful and easy implementable teaching tools and instructables are available for FREE on the NASA website.
