Event Name:  Deadly Moons Art / Astronomy/ Space Drawing Workshop
Event Description:  11:15 am - 12 :15 am Deadly Moons - Internationally Award winning Art / Astronomy Workshop SPORE Award 2011 from the AAAS Deadly Moons is a one hour interactive art/science workshop. I show the children 10 unusual moons from our solar system. I teach them some facts about these worlds and use language they would understand. Then the children vote on which is the deadliest moon, then they draw that moon. In doing this they learn that there are other moons, they learn how these moons are similar to ours but different. This activity helps to strengthen their observing skills which is both a science and art practice. Deadly Moons teaches a little bit about our moon , and the other exotic moons in our solar system. We learn about moon phases, busy moons , quite moons , moon exploration and moon terminology . We have fun with moons and create our choices on black paper with soft pastels in vivid colors. Ideally suits Age 7- 12
