Learn about and see some amazing night skies
The sky can be filled with such beautiful colors, especially at sunrise and sunset. Students will see some examples of beautiful skies, and then will create a galaxy sky over a mountain landscape in the style of contemporary artist Jen Aranyi. They can create a simple scene, and blend or layer colors to make an amazing sky. The lesson will work with best with crayons or colored pencils, but markers can work.
