What is a Constellation?
Maya: A lot of stars that gather up to form shapes.
Titus: A lion
Arlo: Like a tiger
In discovering the planets and our solar system we thought a nice way to revisit line and connection was through constellations.
Because constellations are abstract representations of images created out of certain star patterns, what better way to understand this then by creating our very own constellations.
We have (starting from top left):
The Grocery Cart, The Pulley, The unnamed constellation, The Silly Duck
This piece was done in steps from painting the dark space sky to cutting out the stars and gluing them. Each day we devoted a little bit of time to it and our constellations came out great!
