About: My rocket was all about my crazy imagination and ideas. I love it because 100% of it was all me. I especially enjoy all the weird shapes I did. For example the sides are wings,so when my rocket launches the wings start flapping. Last of all, I realized that art’s not always about being a super good drawer, you have to have a big imagination and think outside of the box.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, very much.

About: I like my art to be both colorful and exciting. For the Dream Rocket Project my teacher, Ms. Walton, said we could paint a realistic rocket or an imaginary one.

I chose an imaginary rocket for this project because I like making myself focus and think harder to create something that has never been thought of before. Then I made the actual art. This makes it feel like the art is even more relaxing.

Even though I chose an imaginary rocket, I still know what a real rocket looks like. =)
