Title: A Place in Space

Theme: I based it on my other art work.

Materials and techniques: A mechanical pencil, a big piece of paper, a lot of paintbrushes, paint and plates. My first technique was to make my rocket radiate energy so I put some of my paint around my spaceship’s upper compartment. I also used a certain type of paint brush got a light yellow and spun it around so It created my stars.

Did you enjoy this project? I loved it and i’m pretty sure most of us did!

About: I created this art based off of my KWL art which was a white planet with pink water, a blue sun, and yellow aliens. My rocket was destined for that planet. I have a small compartment in the top so in case something goes wrong my little people inside can go up there and leave through that. I decided to draw my KWL art because my teacher told us to and I wanted her first impression of me to be off the wall but serious about my artwork, odd and yet normal, quirky but inspired.
