Augusta Elementary art teacher Charlene Jesser is happy to announce more creative works from local students will be used as part of the Dream Rocket Project.
The Dream Rocket Project (DRP) launched in 2009, is collecting 8,000 works of art that will be stitched together to wrap a Saturn V Moon Rocket replica at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. More than 5,300 artworks have been displayed at 134 venues in 22 states. Since 2011, the project has collaborated with 3,659 children in Kansas alone. Previous art work by local students is currently at the NASA Kennedy Visitors Center in Florida.
The most recent art creations from the Lincoln students will be included on panels for the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka and will be on display from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31. Plans are being made for a field trip to allow the students to tour the site.
