Teaching Astronomy Through Art

Are you looking for a way to breathe new life into your astronomy studies? These supplemental lessons reinforce astronomy facts while teaching art techniques. Art topics in both books include cylinders or spheres, shading, contrasting, blending oil pastels, watercolor, map making, and more within the context of astronomy topics such as telescopes, astronomers, stars, comets, the sun, galaxy, nebulas, asteroids, solar and lunar eclipses, and the International Space Station. Several lessons are internet linked to resources to provide supplemental information, and astronomic photographs and works of art are presented as examples. A Table of Contents helps you easily find the art lessons to correspond with your astronomy lesson. Suggested art supplies include: chalk pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, water color paints, black construction paper, white drawing paper, 2 "H" pencils (or ebony drawing pencil), colored pencils, compass, protractor, ruler, tube water colors and scrap paper. ~ Deanne/Donna
