Hubble Telescope

The 2nd graders have been learning about space and patterns in the night sky. For our first art lesson we looked at pictures of space taken by the Hubble telescope. We noticed the colorful gases and beautiful formations in space! We decided the most beautiful art in the world has been recorded by the Hubble telescope. For our art lesson, we learned how to blend colors by creating a watercolor wash as we created our own fantasy space picture. While our paintings were drying we made a black frame for our picture in the shape of a telescope and decorated the border with metallic markers. These pictures are just beautiful! Come visit the 2nd grade hall to enjoy the beautiful artwork as you take a flight of fancy into outer space!
