Title: Sea Horse

Leader: Dawn M. Eisert

Theme: Imagination

Did you enjoy this project? I enjoyed working on the project because it allowed me to use my creativity and imagination to create a unique work of art. It’s exciting to be part of a project that brings diverse people together.

About: I really enjoy underwater animals, horses and painting so combined the two passions to create a sea horse. This art piece is in support of the theme for the Willow Park Zoo (Zootah) Exhibit. “Our planet is home to a wide variety of life forms with incredible adaptations that help them survive and thrive in their environments. Also, our planet is covered in a wide variety of habitats with extreme conditions. Artists were asked … “How the adaptations of Earth animals could be used by aliens to survive and thrive the extremes seen on other planets?” Each artist then let their creativity and imagination soar!

Title: Oh, I Wish I Were …

Leader: Dawn M. Eisert

Theme: Imagination

Did you enjoy this project? We had a “hot-diggity-dog” of a time working on this project. One of the artists, is a Hotdogger for the 2016-2017 marketing season and drives the Wienermobile from coast to coast. We will “relish” the moments we shared creating this art piece together!

About: We enjoyed creating an enormous squid with extra eyes to keep an eye on the stars for incoming visitors from other planets. Space travelers ride in style in an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile that has been converted into a Space Rocket to transport “Hotdoggers” and haul buns through the galaxy to visit alien animals on various planets and their Zoos.

Title: Sea Full of Stars

Leader: Dawn M. Eisert

Theme: Imagination

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint, sponging, and glitter glue.

Did you enjoy this project? I really enjoyed working on this art project because I got to use and learn different textures. Also I got to spend time with my mom. Lastly I enjoyed doing this project because I got to express different feelings. The unexplainable shape and life form of a starfish can be compared to the likeness of an alien life form.

About: I chose this art piece because starfish are unique. They can live under water, on sand, and the terrain of other planets. The starfish represents the beauty of the stars in space.
