Title: The Milky Way Transformation

Teacher: Mrs. Calvert

Theme: Space

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint, canvas, and metal. Finger painting and sponging.

Did you enjoy this project? The group was excited to see their original plan evolve as they started working on it. Ideas exploded as they discovered and experimented with the way color moved and blended on the canvas. They more color they added, the more texture appeared which added a sophisticated element to the overall composition.

About: The group felt they could be most creative with the cow in space theme as ideas grew once we put fingers to paint. The group likes cows and galaxies. The old plane is symbolic of the past way of transportation which is no longer needed. The cow is symbolic of the future and the Milky Way ties them together.

About: The group was thinking outside of the box as other classmates chose rocket ships, they wanted to make a bolder, comical statement suggesting cows being tested in space and the moon as their catapult.
