Project Description

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.
